    Today, Plaquenil and other antimalarials are also used to treat and help prevent symptoms caused by certain autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis RA, systemic lupus erythematosus, and discoid lupus, even though these diseases are not caused by malaria parasites.

I see so much info on the net where some says that Plaquenil has very mild effect on immune system except for eye issues --- Other info says it is an immunosuppressant. Aug 25, 2011 I'm not a healthcare provider, but I do take Plaquenil and just found out from another user of it that it does suppress the immune system. I didn't know that when I started taking it for Sjogren's in November 2011. In January 2012, I had a horrible cold, stomach flu and then SHINGLES.

    May 05, 2016 That's a strong plus for Plaquenil since many other drugs that work on the immune system also weaken it and can thereby increase the risk for infection substantially. Plaquenil is a slow acting drug. These medications may also prevent lupus from spreading to certain organs, such as the kidney and central nervous system your brain and spinal cord and may help to reduce flares by as much as 50%. Plaquenil and other anti-malarials are the key to controlling lupus long term, and some lupus patients may be on Plaquenil for the rest of their lives. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria.
