I have been taking this medication for four years along with Mobic I have been pain free. No longer do I have pain in my joints or my thigh bones. My hair has stopped falling out and I can work a full time job, type all day and raise 3 boys on my own. I love my life again, and Thank God for this medication.

Comment:
I began taking Plaquenil 2 years ago for Lupus and RA and have been very pleased, I have not had any side effects and as long as I remember to take it, I am able to keep my flares to a minimum.
