I wondering why my taste for my favorite FOOD ~ chocolate is gone, well not completely but everything sweet that I eat now since I started the plaquenil, is way to sweet to me. I know I could stand to loose a couple of pounds:lol:, but my chocolate.:rotfl: COME ON.

Hi shorty,

I class this as an emergency ;):lol: a serious one at that! I've never heard of a Lupie who doesn't want to consume chocolate in vast quantities.

Seriously though chocolate consumption falling has not been mentioned here before upon starting Plaquenil. But then all things in Lupus are strange :hehe:

Now if it was chocolate consumption falling because of going off Prednisone I could understand, it tends to make us crave sweet stuff. But then I'm not on Pred right now and I still crave sweet stuff so I guess I just blew that theory out of the water.

love
Lily

Thanks, I took your advise and talk to my doctor and she said sometimes your taste buds do change it could be that I have that metal taste because of the plaquenil. :lol::lol:Then she laughed with me and said its not a bad thing for me, of all people to ease up on my chocolate.
