    Prednisone/Plaquenil question - Aug 22, 2008 I had some issues with the plaquenil, nausea and extremity swelling. My rheumy told me that he has never had anyone have leg and hand swelling on plaquenil but he does not doubt it is from the plaquenil. I'm off the prednisone and must say that I am working on adapting to the plaquenil because I can tell it is helping.

    Can i take advil with Prednisone and / or Plaquenil

    Plaquenil and Sun Sensitivity - Reviews Plaquenil is what they prescribe for Lupus, Sjogren's and mild RA, so even though we aren't given the official diagnosis, we are treated the exact same. Plaquenil has been amazing for me. It does take about 3 months to notice. I was sensitive to the sun before I started, I'm not sure if this has improved because I avoid the sun completely.
