    Hydroxychloroquine oral tablet can interact with other medications, vitamins, or herbs you may be taking. An interaction is when a substance changes the way a drug works. Hello all, I am currently new to this site and ran across the discussion about stopping Plaquenil. I have been taking Plaquenil for about 8-9 months and thought that it was not helping me because I still have a fair amount of joint pain, fatigue, muscle pain and so many other issues. I can't even imagine what I would be like without the meds, probably incapacitated. So I think that your doctor just needs to get you on the right combination therapy - perhaps you need something else along with the plaquenil? Wishing you good feelings! TisJustMe
