    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.
    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
