vivid nightmares
I started plaquenil 400 mg 4 weeks ago. The nightmares started 1 week after starting and are getting more and more vivid, real and terrifying. Typically nightmares don't bother me but as a survivor of severe domestic abuse with PTSD, my nightmares decided to relive that part of my life every time I close my eyes. I hadn't had any nightmares or relapses of the PTSD for 3 years until starting this med. The lupus symptoms have improved with the combination of methotrexate I had been on and I'm not getting pneumonia all the time like I was on the TNF inhibitors. However starting to rethink this med if I'm going to be going to bed to these dreams every night. My doctor told me how important the treatment is being I'm 32 and my heart is being affected now. Do they ever get better??

Plaquenil and retinal detachments
I'm 43 and diagnosed with RA about 2 yrs ago. Have been on Plaquenil 200mg/day for over a year. Coincidence??? Since this summer, living through hell because of multiple retinal detachments in my left eye... Just found out other eye's retina looks like lattice, so also thinning out. I want to stop taking Plaquenil but also afraid of RA flare-ups... Solution anyone???
I have been on plaquinil for a little over a year and had a retinal detachment in my left eye. I am 55 years old. No symptoms other than a few floaters. Came on suddenly.
