    In my opinion, Plaquenil is best considered an immunosuppressant. It’s true that it’s different than other immunosuppressants like methotrexate or cyclosporine.

    Plaquenil & weight loss Lupus Forums at The Lupus Site Plaquenil can cause loss of appetite and I agree that losing weight at this rate and suffering diarrhea is not healthy and might mean you become ill nourished and dehydrated. I suggest lowering the dose, going back to the original, until your tum has settled down then very gradually increasing it to give your body the maximum chance to adjust.
