    Just curious to know what the stats are on those of us who take Plaquenil. When I first saw the Rheumy when I got my Sjogren's diagnose, he started me on 200mg 2 x day. I found that the evening dose was fine, but the morning dose, that I would take with my usual breakfast of cereal was causing me gassiness all day. Prescribed Hydroxychloroquine after having been in hospital with Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura ITP. The ITP was being dealt with by the Haematology Consultant - reducing doses of prednisalone. The Rheumatology Consultant prescribed the Hydroxychloroquine HQ, as I suffer Sjogren's syndrome symptoms. The first dose of Plaquenil is usually taken one to two weeks before traveling to an area where malaria is prevalent. Doses are then continued for four weeks after exposure.
