    Is plaquenil safer than methotrexate

    Yesterday my rheumatologist started me on hydroxychloroquine as well. Is anyone else on this combination and have you had any problems with it as I know hydroxychloroquine can cause eye sight problems.

    May 11, 2017 DMARDs and biologics have changed the course of rheumatoid arthritis for many people. Compare these two types of drugs for treating rheumatoid arthritis. Other than that I have had some GI issues when the Plaquenil was increased, but I seem to now be adjusting to it as well. Both have really helped as my inflammation markers are now back in the normal ranges in my blood work--they were 600 times normal before I began. I still have joint pain, but it is much less than before. If a particular preparation is ineffective after a 4-week trial or is not tolerated, then another NSAID can be initiated. No one NSAID has been demonstrated to be better than another for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis nor have the COX-2 agents been shown to be superior to traditional NSAIDS in terms of effectiveness. Usual Time to Effect

    Recently my eyes have felt sore and, after posting a question on this site, I am seeing my GP on Monday. Thanks Hi Catjones I have been taking this combination, started on both of them in January this year.

  7. The fatigue is still considerable on some days, but overall I feel 110% better than I did. I was unable to work before taking these drug and now I am back to working full time and I spent this entire weekend enjoying my grandkids! I have also been able to step the prednisone bake to no more than 5 Mg every two days which is a big plus.

    Methotrexate is classified as a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD.   The drug decreases pain and swelling associated with rheumatoid arthritis, slows progression of the disease, and helps prevent joint damage. When considering effectiveness and safety, is methotrexate injection better than oral methotrexate? Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil® is used for rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil® is an antibiotic used to treat malaria, but it also works to treat symptoms of RA, lupus, and other rheumatic diseases. It can reduce your joint pain and swelling. I told my doctor I wanted to research a bit before I gave an answer. Do you think I should try the Plaquenil first before starting MTX or is it fine to jump to MTX? From what I read so far, seems like methotrexate is a bigger drug with more side effects so plaquenil would be the better choice. Any information would be helpful.
