    Having issues with Plaquenil - It might be a bit of heartburn or gastritis. Make sure though to wait 2 hrs before and 2hrs after taking the plaquenil to take an antacid. Watch that sun. I find I feel worse when I've had too much of it. I'm prone to itching like crazy after too much sun. Are you using a broad spectrum sunscreen and UV protective clothing hat too?

    Arava AND Plaquenil for RA. DailyStrength I was on Plaquenil and Arava, plus Orencia for a bit last year, till I finally went off the Plaquenil, which wasn't working. My enzymes went up a slight bit in the beginning and then settled down. It did not affect me nearly as badly as mthx. I was on that for 9 years, and my enzymes got so high I had to stop.
