Did you hear the news last night about singulair?
My son is on that for his allergies and asthma and so is his son.
It causes mood swings and they can be quite severe to the point that they have caused people to become suicidal. Now mind you I was pretty sleepy last night while the news was on, so I didn't see it too good, but my daughter was telling me about it and I caught some of it.
But what I heard was the mood swing part. It was on fox five news. I'm not sure if anyone has actually hurt themselves while on this medication, but it's worth looking into. My son is looking into getting on another med because he's noticed the mood swings while on it. And those he can do without especially with a two year old around on the weekends.
I'm on plaquenil too and have also noticed a slight pick up of chest congestion, but I don't think it is from the plaquenil. I think it's just from my disease (copd) progressing on it's own. I think the plaquenil has actually helped me with pain and has actually done it's part in helping with aleaviating my overall chest discomfort. But on occassion I still end up needing to use steroids.
I am now getting over pneumonia. I was so sick there. I was in the hospital for two days. What a nightmare.
Hope you are feeling better soon.
