    User Reviews for Plaquenil to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis. The following information is NOT intended to endorse any particular medication. While these reviews might be helpful, they are not a substitute for the expertise, skill, knowledge and judgement of healthcare practitioners. Apr 07, 2012 I take 4,000 mg 8 a day along with Plaquenil and about 10 other medications for Lupus, Scleroderma and Raynaud's. I have noticed on my medication bottle it does say take the Cellcept on an empty stomach. I dont always do that though. I have noticed on here some say it doesnt matter and some say absolutely do not take it with food or other meds. Today, Plaquenil and other antimalarials are also used to treat and help prevent symptoms caused by certain autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis RA, systemic lupus erythematosus, and discoid lupus, even though these diseases are not caused by malaria parasites.

    In some cases, the skin problems associated with scleroderma fade away on their own in two to five years. Your doctor may also suggest other blood tests and imaging or organ-function tests to help determine whether your digestive system, heart or lungs are affected.
