    I need an eye exam for plaquenil


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    I knew I needed regular eye exams while taking hydroxychloroquine, but was surprised to find out that there were some special tests that needed to be done related to drug side effects. This only became clear after a year's treatment with the drug. Plaquenil is a pretty widely used drug so I figure she should have an opinion on it. I would feel more comfortable having the baseline exam done first BUT I am pretty eager to get started on it ASAP as my eye is starting to bug me due to the morphea that is slowly spreading. You may need to see an ophthalmologist not an optometrist for a checkup before beginning to take Plaquenil. While taking Plaquenil, you should return to the ophthalmologist for exams every three months in order to check for side effects relating to your vision.

    As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits.

    At first, they wanted to know why I would bring them there for an eye exam and when I mentioned Plaquenil, they said they'd take her in and they will see her Friday afternoon! She's done 3 of my surgeries so I feel like I know how thorough she is. The doctor said I should have been told to get a baseline retinal eye exam when I first started the Plaquenil to be compared with later tests, but that taking one now would be OK since the retinal eye problem that sometimes comes is not only rare, but almost never shows up before a year on the medication and usually not until several years of use.
