    Plaquenil has been a life-saving drug for me, quite literally. I was a mess in 2004-2005 and then a dr put me on Plaquenil, and in 3 weeks most of my symptoms had disappeared. SAN FRANCISCO – Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil dosing based on actual body weight – instead of ideal weight – is appropriate for patients with systemic lupus erythematosus SLE, according to a review of 686 lupus patients at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Most were dosed by actual weight, 6.5 mg/kg up to a maximum of 400 mg/day. I have been on Plaquenil and can tell you my diarrhea started within days of starting the med. My doctor warned me that diarrhea and weight loss were side effects. I said, "Well, I am usually very constipated and could stand to lose 10 pounds so this could be a good thing." haha. I am NOT constipated any more but have not lost any weight either.
