    I use mayoclinic.com when I need to do a bit of research, so this should be more helpful, although I can't be positive.

    thanks that helped.the Naposyn (sp) isn't working well any more so maybe the plaquenil is why my cluster headaches have gone by the way. I'm likening this.

    I've been on plaquenil for a year now, has helped quite a lot but i still get some nasty flares. I've found that plaquenil makes my stomach hurt so much but I take lanzaprozole to help it and usually take my tablet at night so if I am ill, stomach wise, I can sleep it off. I take 400mg but started on 200mg but wasn't effective enough.

    Plaquenil works well for me. Been taking 200mg twice a day since 2004 with a couple of breaks during that time period, and I've not had any bad side effects. I can't imagine how bad my flares would be without it.
