I'm surprised that some of you have had to stop taking plaquenil due to surgeries, I have gone through numerous of surgeries and I have another surgery coming up in January and my rheumy does not have me stop my plaquenil she said there is no harm in me continuing it.

    My Take on New Ocular Screening Guidelines for Plaquenil. Once retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine occurs, it is thought that the retinal changes are permanent and the disease can progress even if hydroxychloroquine is stopped for 1 to 3 years.
