    What percent of people on plaquenil have eye problems


    Suddenly I'm experiencing eye problems (blilnd spots). I have stopped taking plaquenil, but now I'm being told by doctors that the damage is not necessarily reversible especially if you have taken it for a long time.

    Hydroxychloroquine-related eye problems were once considered rare, but better detection methods now show that they occur in about 7 percent of patients. The risk increases with a higher dose and longer therapy. A National Institutes of Health NIH study has found that although 94 percent of Americans aged 12 and older have good vision, the remaining six percent, or 14 million, are visually impaired. Of these, more than 11 million have uncorrected visual impairment, such as nearsightedness. They need eyeglasses or contact lenses to improve their vision. Plaquenil stays in your body for about 3 months. If you must stop it, it will take a while for the side effects to go away. You should have an eye examination every year to prevent a very rare but serious eye problem. Less than one person in 5,000 develops the problem. Only an eye doctor can see if you have a problem with your retina.

    My mother was diagnosed with Plaquenil Toxicity in 2007 she first noticed changes in 2006, although being followed by her eye doctor they failed to notice this as Plaquenil TX until it was to late. I'm hoping to find people who have recovered from the eye damage.

    I was just talking to my rheumatologist today. She has prescribed plaquenil. She said very rare side effect is some sort of deposits on the eye. I would contact your dr to be on safe side. My dr said to have eye exam with dilation a few months after starting. Just tell eye dr you take plaquenil and she said they would know exactly what to look for.

I'm hoping to find people who have recovered from the eye damage. The incidence of Plaquenil related macular problems increases when approaching a dose of 600 to 700 mg. per day. The average dose is 400 mg. per day. This is a very safe dose.

    Prednisone/Plaquenil question - I take both prednisone and plaquenil. I heard someone once say that prednisone is the drug one loves to hate. It really does wonders to control inflammation, but has nasty side effects when given in large doses and/or used for a long period of time. My first experience with prednisone was horrific I was on 60mg per day, then on to 50, then 40.
