Welcome to our family It is not unusual for Plaquenil to take several months before you see any real results. It is a cumulative drug. However, for most, once it does start to work, it works well. Especially for lesions, ulcer, skin disorders, and for fatigue and joint pain.
You may have to re-prioritize your schedule in order to allow yourself plenty of time for much needed rest. It is important that you get sufficient rest so that your body does not become overstressed, which can cause a flare-up. There are other members here who are also attending college who may come along with some good advice to help you manage your Lupus while at school.
We are so happy that you joined our family and you will find that this site is filled with the kindest, most understanding and informative people on the web. Again.....welcome to our family!
Peace and Blessings
