I don't see this post putting down plaquenil at all. I agree that all the problems dont show up with meds. Its good to know all the possible side effects. Do I think I'll get cancer because Im on Cellcept? No. But it tells me its a possiblity on the list of serious side effects. Im thoroughly convinced plaquenil made me stop growing leg and under arm hair because I never had a problem with that until about 2 months after I started it. Im sure most people would beg for that side effect though lol
