Hi everyone, Ive been on the plaq for four weeks and still struggling, even with two weeks off work so far. Today I suddenly remembered my mobile telephone number :eek: I have had this number for over 2 yrs and could never ever have remembered 11 digits. The plaq must be working somehow...I still have some knee pain and joint pains but not as bad as it was. My flare that I have been in since october seems to be slowly subsiding. 4 weeks in and some improvement is more than I could have ever imagined or hoped for.

I have terrible hair loss still but as I said to aggie who is having the same on the meth, I am hoping that it's the storm before the calm. Anyone else feeling better with Plaq?

Hi Pollianna,

I am glad you are starting to see a glimmer of relief. Since this is early on yet you should be seeing even more improvement. Once the Plaquenil really takes hold the hair loss should subside also.

Plaquenil was my mainstay for years. It lessens the frequency of flares. Plus as far as drugs goes it has the least side effects of anything I take.

Take care,
Lazylegs

Hi Pollianna,
Isn't it wonderful when you start seeing improvement.:)
Like Lazylegs said you should see more improvement ad time goes by.
Love,
Lyn

Great news, so glad to hear it :)

I saw a lot of improvement in skin and hair with plaquenil so hopefully for you that will help with your hair very shortly.

No major improvement but something's going on, maybe because I have inherited a low drug tolerance from my Mother. if I were a coke head it would cost me 50p a day to get high :lol:

Maybe I have been so ill for so long that even the smallest improvement feels good. Thank God for the London Lupus Unit :thumbs:
