I'm leaning towards the methotrexate option rather than the plaquenil one at this time, but I had one more question to ask since I'm still weighing these out a little. I have a Sulfa allergy. Last time I took a sulfa drug I broke out in a body wide rash that itched like hell. This is why my dr gave me the option of looking into plaquenil and methotrexate because the sulfazine he originally wanted to try was absolutely not an option with this reaction. I've been looking at plaquenil and the generic is HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE SULFATE now this has me a little worried because I see sulfate attached. I tried asking a pharmacist since there are no warnings on this drug about sulfa allergies. He said he really didnt know since he didnt have any warnings either but it did have sulfate. Whats a girl to do? Is this even an option for me anymore? Or am I left 100% with only one option of methotrexate now? If I have a sulfate allergy can I take this drug or not? Does anyone here know?
