Yes 24 years stable with the help of Plaquanil, prednisone and methotrexate. But recently I stopped my plaquanil due to retinal toxicity. I was asking my rheumatologist what would be the best replacement. He replied none except to increase my prednisone or metho. I am starting to have aches and pains maybe from plaquanil withdrawal. Any suggestion?

a few of us have found a constant lamount of low level pain relief to be effective.
i use panadol osteo. it is long acting, so i take less of it.
