Had to come off plaquenil 10 days ago due to terrible itching and a fetching little rash which wouldn't win me any beauty contests. Tried anti-histamines which only worked for a short while and then gave in as I was driving everyone mad scratching all the time and i got horrible pus filled spots and a couple of weals on my face- rheumy nurse said to stop taking.
Absolutely gutted as it was working like a dream after only three weeks and is still working even after I've come off it. What I wondered is if anyone else had the same problem and managed to get round the side effects in some way? Here's hoping!!
