    Plaquenil has never raised my liver enzymes and I have been on it for six years. The only time my ALT and AST were elevated when I was taking too much iron supplements for my anemia.

    Yes, plaquenil is difficult to adjust first, but after the first year of treatment and side effects, the benefits outweigh the problems. So, stick with it.

It's just one of those drugs known to have that side effect. Nothing to really help it he said, other than taking folic acid, b12 and biotin. I asked him about methotrexate, and he said he was on it for years for his RA and never had any major side effects.
