There have been a number of coronavirus cases in Florida and two deaths there from the illness. Being on immunosuppressants I'm a little nervous to be travelling there. Plaquenil and acid refux Hydroxychloroquine 200 mg daily Plaquenil y embarazo Hydroxychloroquine dosage 200 mg I was diagnosed in August 2015 and started on methotrexate immediately. I have been on it weekly ever since. So far, I have no joint damage showing up on my x-rays. I have minimal pain most days and take no other meds for RA except occasional NSAIDs. I am really glad I started methotrexate right away. Then immediately when for the drugs, colchicine, plaquenil, methotrexate. I refused until I could review the results and consider what I was being told. Turns out these drugs are for CPPD attacks which I have never had. I told her I understood that CPPD could be a symptomatic and these drugs were not appropriate. I have had RA for 10 years and have been on Plaquenil pretty much the whole time. Methotrexate did not work for me and made me very nauseous. I also take 5-10 mg prednisone and an injection of Humira every week. I have had no side effects from the Plaquenil. Prednisone is a mean drug however, I can tell you this as a nurse too but I have to. Am I crazy to go into an area with known cases of coronavirus? We're watching our government travel advisories and won't go if they issue anything about Florida because our travel insurance won't cover us in that case.
