hi
i have sle ( diagnosed 1 year ago). my latest tests show sle activity but no inflammation, therefore my rheumy dicided to change my medication from 400 g of plaquenil to 200 g. It's been a week now and i notice i feel a little worse. I heard sometimes changing the dose can bring a sorta little flare: can this happen with plaquenil too? Ever experienced anything similar?
thanks

My doctor has not lowered my Plaquenil. And I don't know of anyone who has had the Plaquenil lowered either. But if you are having symptoms, please call the doctor. A little flare can become a big one in a hurry, and all your progress goes down the drain. Catch it while it is still manageable.
