I have Lupus SLE and my Doctor has put me on Plaquenil 200 mg once a day to start. I took my first Pill yesterday and with in the first two hours I knew I felt a little funny, like I was a little high or something was in my body that did not belong there. This morning I felt some dizziness, almost like I was going to pass out. This morning I called the Dr. and told him and he told me that this can be a normal feeling at first and should go away with in the week or so. In the mean time he said not to take the Plaquenil today, but to take it every other day till I got used to is.
I was wondering if this is something that anyone else has had while just starting Plaquenil and did this feeling go away, or do you think this it a bad reaction to the Plaquenil?
