I have been on Plaquenil since June this year. I was really nauseous but then my doctor told me to take it at night time and it is so much better. People have said that it take months for it to start to work. I am only starting to see some improvement in my Lupus now (3 months later). I am hoping in another few months I should be in total remission. The best advice I can give you is:
Take your medication at night time
Don't miss a dose
If you have any problems speak to your doctor
See an eye doctor soon for a baseline then make yearly appointments
DON'T go off yuor medication without discussing it with your docotor first!
