    According to the New Zealand Dermatological Society, Plaquenil can cause abnormalities in blood counts. An abnormally low number of white blood cells can lead to infection, because white blood cells defend the body against bacteria. Low platelet count thrombocytopenia can lead to easy bleeding and bruising. Low white cells are a part of the autoimmune issue. This is something that I have dealt with for years. I have been on the Plaquenil a couple of years now and my immunologist told me that Plaquenil doesn't cause the same issues as the DMARDS or the methotrexates, imuran, etc. Renal clearance in rheumatoid arthritis RA patients taking Plaquenil for at least six months seemed to be similar to that of the single dose studies in volunteers, suggesting that no change occurs with chronic dosing. Range for renal clearance of unchanged drug was approximately 16 to 30%.

    In any case, you could say that I was in denial for the first six months of my diagnosis. He referred me to a Rhuemy who ran some addition tests and asked me some questions to basically confirm the dx.
