Hi Steerpike,

I take amox. and Plaquenil..I have no idea how to spell that. I started the Plaquenil about 8 months ago. They where not sure if I had lyme at that point. They were calling it "Undifferential connective tissue disease". Since then we have found out it is lyme but I continue to take it. It helps relieve my fatigue and my knee pain.

Did your doctor explain to you that it takes several months to have improvement with it. You might improve a bit but it has to be built up to have it's full potential. I didn't have any problems with it besides a little upset stomach for the first week or two. I am on the same dosage of it as you are.

Your supposed to have routine eye exams done with it because of potential vision problems. Every doctor I have spoke to about this said your chance are less than one in a million to develop that problem. I just keep my annual eye exams.

I hope it works out for you. Remember not to get discouraged if you don't notice a difference for quite awhile.

Good luck to you...deb
