Welcome to the site Mistylea,

I am sorry to hear about your past miscarriages. The loss of a baby is such a devastating experience. It does make me wonder if you possibly have Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) along with your lupus. You should ask your doctor if a test for APS has been run. The following link might have some useful information for you.

Plaquenil is usually the first medication Lupus patients are given. It does take time for it to start working. In my case it was 6 months, but we each react differently. It helps lessen disease activity and reduce flares. The one negative is there could be a problem with the eyes however that is extremely rare. You should get a baseline eye exam and continue to have your eyes checked according to your doctor's recommended schedule.

Take care,
