    I was taking plaquenil 2Xs a day since November. I went to my Rheumy at the March 21 and he cut me back to 1 plaquenil a day,he said that is what he usually does if it is being effective. Does anyone else take 2-- 200mg pills a day, and if so for how long have you been doing this. I know I have to have an eye exam every 6 months but other than that I don't understand why he would cut me back. I have been in so much pain every day for the past couple of weeks that I was wondering if it was from the reduction of plaquenil. Should I call his office, I don't know what to do.
    Thanks for your input

    Check with your doctor. But also see if it is time to have your eyes checked.
    This drug has a high incidence of eye complications.
    Please have a take with your eye doctor also.
