I WENT TO HAVE MY EYES EXAMINED. I HAVE SLE AND HAVE BEEN ON PLAQENIL FOR FOUR YEARS. I HAVE NOTICED PROBLEMS. I HAVE TROUBLE READING SMALL PRINT, DIZZY, AND MY EYES FEEL SORE AND OVER WORKED. MY EYE DOCTOR EXAMINED MY EYES AND TOOK ME THROUGH THE COLOR TEST WHICH I DID NOT DO VERY WELL ON. SHE THINKS PLAQUENIL IS AFFECTING MY EYES.MY RHEMY WANTS ME TO CONTINUE TO TAKE PLAQUENIL AND CUT MY 400MG TO 200MG A DAY BUT DOES NOT WANT TO GIVE ME ANYTHING ELSE FOR PAIN.I HAVE ASKED TO TRY SOMETHING ELSE MY BODY ACHES. MY LEGS ACHE TO THE BONE IT SEEMS LIKE AND I CAN'T GET COMFORABLE TO REST. MY LOWER BACK ACHES AND IT'S HARD TO GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNINGS.

I HAVE DONE ENOUGH RESEARCH TO KNOW EVEN IF I STOP TAKING IT TODAY IT CAN STILL AFFECT MY EYESIGHT.PLEASE GIVE ADVICE ON WHAT DIRECTION YOU WOULD TAKE. THANKS EVERYONE
