Hello All,

Has anyone ever experienced a dark mask on your face from hydroxychloroquine (generic form of plaquenil)?

I have a dark mask around the outside of my face (similar to the mask some women get when they're pregnant) as well as dark spots on my neck and in the creases of my arms and legs. My dermatologist said its a side effect of the hydroxychloroquine. My Rheumy has reduced the dosage of hydroxychloroquine from 400mg a day to 200mg, Has anyone ever had this as a side effect and if so, did you stop taking the plaquenil, was your dosage lowered?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
