Hi G!

You are correct that Plaquenil is a slow-acting drug. You could see improvements in as little as a few weeks, but many people stay on it for six to nine months before they can tell it is working. It took about seven months in my case, and it primarily helped with my joint pain. For others it also helps with skin issues.

Hang in there! With some luck, you might respond fairly quickly to it.
