    Plaquenil is prescribed as a disease-modifier, in other words, to decrease pain, decrease swelling, and prevent joint damage and disability. It is not known how Plaquenil works but researchers believe that Plaquenil interferes with communication between cells within the immune system.   Ultimately, it is thought to block proinflammatory. If there is a lot of joint pain, as in RA, there is generally reduced mobility and stiffness in the affected joints. Plaquenil and other anti-malarials such as hydroxychloroquine is thought to act by interfering with the production and release of blood cells that are involved in the body's immune defence system. We know about this with our lupus. Plaquenil itself probably does not have a direct affect on your immune system - it is a DMARD and is not considered to be an immunosuppressant. However, many with active autoimmune diseases feel that they are not succeptible to many of the common viruses that they are exposed to - somewhat of a silver lining.

    It alters your immune system, but as far as I know, it doesn't actually suppress it. Plus, if you have only been on it a month, it's probably not built up enough in your body to have much of an effect. I have actually been way HEALTHIER than ever since being on Plaquenil AND Methotrexate, which DOES suppress the immune system - go figure! Answer Plaquenil, or hydroxychloroquine HCQ, is an anti-malarial medication that has been proven to be useful in the treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis RA, sys- temic lupus erythematosus SLE and other inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. My gyn oncologist was concerned that the Plaquenil may affect my immune system to ward of the hpv since we all know a good immune system is needed to fight the virus --- He understands the RA pain conundrum I have.

    How to Succeed in Plaquenil Screenings In early cases of Plaquenil toxicity, an early indicator of damage is the appearance of a paracentral scotoma seen on automated visual field testing in the absence of fundus changes. 18 Each of the testing strategies can be used to detect early toxicity changes, but the presentation of the visual field effects will vary. Due to the central area being depressed in the 24-2 and 30-2 testing strategies, it is difficult to discern the central 2-degree field of sparing seen in the 10-2 tests.
