    My rheumatologist nor the GI doctor have suggested alternate treatments to see if it could be the problem. I know it can be a temporary side effect for some, but I've been on it for a year.

  6. Nausea from Plaquenil, etc. nowah1965 posted. Plaq did give me diarrhea, and there are OTC meds like Immodium AD and script meds like Hyoscyamine that can help there. Over time my tummy adjusted to Plaq. I did find that taking it with milk made my tummy troubles worse, but it is recommended to take it with food.

    I’ve been on plaquenil for almost 3 years and I still have diarrhea and to a lesser extent heartburn and nausea sometimes. The first year or two I was on plaquenil I didn’t have a normal bowel movement for as long as I could remember and was constantly nauseous and could barely eat. I've been taking Plaquenil for one month 1 x 200 mg. I should have taken 2 x 200 mg but from the beginning I had diarrhea and stomach pain. If I want to increase the Plaquenil my complaints get worse. My Dr. prescribed Plaquenil the other day, I took 2-200mg pills in a 24 hr period and I was sick as a dog. I had stomach cramps, nausea and painful diarrhea, not to mention heart palpitations and an all over uneasiness. By the end of the 24 hrs I had also contracted a chest cold. Needless to say it was a rough couple of days.

    Treating Lupus with Anti-Malarial Drugs Johns Hopkins. With Plaquenil, however, the most commonly prescribed anti-malarial, this sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more. For this reason though, it is important that you see an ophthalmologist for an exam before starting to take an anti-malarial medication for your lupus.

    Sjogren's syndrome - Diagnosis and treatment - Mayo Clinic Sjogren's syndrome can be difficult to diagnose because the signs and symptoms vary from person to person and can be similar to those caused by other diseases. Side effects of a number of medications also mimic some signs and symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome. Tests can help rule out other conditions and help pinpoint a diagnosis of Sjogren's.
