Diagnosed with SLE with liver involvement and this medication has helped a great deal with improvements in blood tests especially liver function. Some mild side effects initially but they finally disappeared.

Comment:
Plaquenil eased the discomfort of lupus and RH, but over six years use, I gained 60 pounds of weight from fluid. I had allergic breaking out all over my body. This cleared up when I ceased use. I lost the 60 pounds in two months.
