I took Plaquenil for a few years in the early 1990's, shortly after I was diagnosed with lupus. I had the same eye checks and fortunately no vision loss ( my vision is extremely poor anyway). My consultant took me off the drug in about 1996.
Loss of vision is considered a rare side effect that increases in prevalence the longer you are on Plaquenil, usually at the 10 year mark. But if you found something that worked just as well, it was probably a good thing to discontinue it.Post a Comment
