I agree with Joelf, I've only been on Plaquenil for a year, and all is ok. I was diagnosed with Systemic Scleroderma with CREST a year ago. I have multiple autoimmune issues, starting 20ish years go, and I'm not a fan of taking prescriptions. Just make sure you get your eyes checked, and ask your doctor about any concerns, or let them know of any changes. Communication is key! I make packets for each doctor of current labs, medications, and a list of all my doctors. I'm proactive!
Hi Paula63, I was diagnosed with Systemic Scleroderma with CREST a year ago, I asked the Dr to run the test again, and it came up the same. I'm still learning about my newest issue, one of many, but try to keep the stress down. I know, easier said then done. I just signed up to this forum tonight. We are here to help each other, and learn. It took me 4 doctors to get diagnosed, I had a positive ANA, but everyone kept testing me for Lupus, which that test was negative.
