Advice & Tips: The plaquenil initially worked for my arthritis, myalgia, fatigue. The initial side effects were pretty brutal - nausea, diarrhea, weird things with my eyes, headaches. The side effects wore off after about a month and I felt OK for about 5 months after that and then it just stopped working.
