hi, I just found out a few months ago that I have lupus and started taking plaquenil. I know it's a progressive medicine so I was wondering if I should now be staying away from alcohol seeing as I've been on the medicine for a while and I don't have a very high alcohol tolerance anyway. any helpful advice helps!!!

hi sar.

the advice i always try to give to people.
plaquenil does not work if you have alcohol in your system.
it is ok to drink in moderation.
but make sure the alcohol is out of your system, before it is time for your medication.

many of us enjoy an occassional drink.
