I have been taking Plaquenil 100 mg split into two doses for a couple weeks now. I have been sick to my stomach for most of these two weeks and the past two days have been pretty awful. I knew this was going to be a problem from the beginning because I had this same reaction when I was put on it after being diagnosed. My doctor was hoping that such a small dose would be better, but so far no luck. And I am running out of patience.
I also woke up with a migraine today which has not helped my mood. I had to take my migraine medicine twice during the night and then this morning 600 mg of ibuprofen (because I am not taking the Mobic right now because of my stomach).
On Tuesday I meet with her again to talk about my lupus and the results of my kidney ultrasound. I got a letter from her today that said I have multiple stones in them. This does not really surprise me because I have a history of kidney stones.
The weather is gorgeous here (but hot) and I have not been able to enjoy it because of my stomach. I am hoping things will change around quickly. If not then I will have to stop the Plaquenil.
