A few more PLAQUINEL questions
OK, so I started taking Plaquinel about a week ago -- 200 mg, twice daily. . .
Since then, I've noticed three things: My appetite has decreased, my weight has increased by a few lbs., and I now spend an extraordinary amount of time in the bathroom with diarrhea. One would think because I am essentially pooping my brains out, my weight would decrease instead of increase.
Oops sorry --- meant "Plaquenil"
I don;t know about the weight gain, but Plaquenil gave me a miserably upset tummy - I think it affects many people that way. Are you taking it with food? You may need to lower your dose and gradually vuild up to a full dose - have you let your doc know about the tummy troubles?
