Plaquenil is also commonly used in UCTD, RA, and Sjorgen's, as well as lupus. It is the first line drug used in treating lupus under circumstances where the organs are not being affected. In my opinion, it's less important to know for sure if you have SLE or UCTD than it is to be on a medication that has helped so much. In many ways, you're better off with a UCTD diagnosis for insurance reasons. The treatment is the same though for non-organ involving lupus and UCTD so you're definitely on the right path for treatment. Glad to hear it is helping you so much!
