    Long-Term Side Effects of Plaquenil for Rheumatoid Arthritis. Plaquenil is the brand name of hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to prevent or treat malaria. Plaquenil is also used for long-term treatment of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis RA and systemic lupus erythmatosis. These side effects were seen most often in patients receiving large doses for treatment of lupus or rheumatoid arthritis; however, such reactions have been noted in patients taking therapeutic doses for short periods. Symptoms often resolved over time with a reduction of the dose or discontinuation of chloroquine. Possible side effects of methotrexate include nausea, vomiting, and abnormal liver function. Some patients develop mouth sores, rash, or diarrhea. Tell your doctor if you develop shortness of breath or chronic cough. Additionally, some patients may experience hair loss.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend against treatment of malaria with chloroquine alone due to more effective combinations. In areas where resistance is present, other antimalarials, such as mefloquine or atovaquone, may be used instead.
