I have been taking plaquenil since Oct. 10 and have been fine until a couple of days ago, I started having severe itching. Has anyone experience this? Per my last post... I have now been referred to a neuro surgeon for cervical spinal stenosis. I have also been placed on blood pressure meds. I am not sure if the pain is making my blood pressure go up or what.
So sorry this is happening to you... One can become allergic to anything overnight! You might want to get in touch with your doctor and stop taking the Plaquinal... Sorry too that you are facing back surgery. I hope it goes well for you. You might want to build up your bones by taking Ipriflavone and calcium supplements with Vitamin D3. And don't forget to take Vit. C after your surgery to speed your recovery!
