Vivid dreams
| Gary B.
I have been on Plaquenil now for about 2 years and the vivid and intense dreams started almost immediately. The doctor(s) said they had no reports of other patients mentioning it but it is real. I have gotten used to it and occasionally find myself looking forward to the entertainment. Sometimes they are violent and I wake up. I think I will try cutting the dose in 1/2 for a while and see if it helps.

I have been on plaquenil for over 10 years. My hair turns white around my face at the scalp. I feel like I go to sleep and wake up grey. Dye job last one week at roots.

After my daughter started to take Plaquenil 200 mg per day she got nightmares. Now after 6 months she doesn't have it that much but it is really difficult for her to fall asleep before 12pm. The sleep itself is rather fragmentary. But as there were many other problems we did not think about Plaquenil. Hopefully, changing time of intake will make things better...

Change in generic plaquenil?
| Suziesd
The shape of the pill went from oblong to round and I'm not sure that it is the same quality. I wondered if anyone else felt a difference, as in it's not working?

Tamoxifen plus HCQ is a dangerous duo for the retina. This study included 38 patients using both hydroxychloroquine and tamoxifen; of those patients, 12 (31.6%) developed retinopathy—a rate much higher than in any other subgroup. See Retrospective study published:
JAMA Ophthalmol. 2014; 132:1453-1460
