They have looked at everything else, and nothing else fits what is going on. My platelet count had been low and went even lower and I had mild anemia for years. I need help, so I don't mind) It was 38 two weeks ago, and it is 52 now. I wish you didn't have this to deal with at such a young age. My doctors deduced I had it several months before my first flare and confirmation by tests that I had lupus.

    The erythrocyte sedimentation rate ESR or sed rate and C-reactive protein CRP are among the oldest laboratory tests still in use. 1-3 Both bloods tests are used to detect inflammation in the body. 4-6 Inflammation can present as either acute ie, from injury or infection or chronic. Plaquenil is not effective against chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine-resistant strains of Plasmodium species see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY – Microbiology. Plaquenil is not recommended for the treatment of malaria acquired in geographic areas where chloroquine resistance occurs or when the Plasmodium species has not been identified.

Make sure your rheumatologist has as much information as possible. That is why so many do not get a positive diagnosis for years.

My highest "SED Rate" within the last 3 years, was 10, the range was 0-20, MM/HOUR-Main. My "C-Reactive Protein" was high 1.4 High with the normal range was a score of 0.8. I was very sick with allergy-driven, sinusitis. I exprienced severe joint and muscle pain along with severe muscle stiffness and weakness. The sedimentation rate-- or “sed rate,” for short -- is a blood test that checks for inflammation in your body. It’s one clue for your doctor that you might have a disease linked to.

    Dosing schedules not well established in children Case reports describe dosage regimens that are effective yet tolerated, such as 12.5 mg PO twice weekly over 2 yr in a child aged 4-6 yr, and 100 mg PO twice weekly over 5 months in a child aged 12 yr; mg/kg dosing not reported Hypersensitivity to chloroquine, 4-aminoquinolones Psoriasis, porphyria, retinal or visual field changes For prevention, may use proguanil concomitantly Shown to cause severe hypoglycemia including loss of consciousness that could be life-threatening in patients treated with or without antidiabetic medications; patients should be warned about risk of hypoglycemia and associated clinical signs and symptoms; patients presenting with clinical symptoms suggestive of hypoglycemia during treatment with chloroquine should have blood glucose level checked and treatment reviewed as necessary Not effective in most areas; CDC recommends mefloquine or atovaquone/proguanil - check CDC traveler information for specific recommendations for region May cause hemolysis in glucose-6 phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) deficiency; blood monitoring may be needed as hemolytic anemia may occur, in particular in association with other drugs that cause hemolysis Monitor CBC periodically with prolonged therapy Caution with history of auditory damage Caution with hepatic disease, alcoholism, and coadministration with other hepatotoxic drugs May provoke seizures in patients with history of epilepsy Antacids and kaolin reduce chloroquine absorption; separate administration by at least 4 hr Irreversible retinal damage observed in some patients; significant risk factors for retinal damage include daily doses of chloroquine phosphate 2.3 mg/kg of actual body weight, durations of use greater than five years, subnormal glomerular filtration, use of some concomitant drug products such as tamoxifen citrate, and concurrent macular disease A baseline ophthalmological examination should be performed within the first year of initiating therapy; for individuals with significant risk factors, monitoring should include annual examinations; discontinue if ocular toxicity is suspected; patient should be closely observed given that retinal changes (and visual disturbances) may progress even after cessation of therapy In individuals of Asian descent, retinal toxicity may first be noticed outside macula; it is recommended that visual field testing be performed in visual field of central 24 degrees instead of central 10 degrees May exacerbate heart failure Not effective against chloroquine- or hydroxychloroquine-resistant strains of Plasmodium species; information regarding geographic areas where resistance to chloroquine occurs, is available at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (gov/malaria) Does not treat hypnozoite liver stage forms of Plasmodium and will therefore not prevent relapses of malaria due to P. ovale; additional treatment with an anti-malarial agent active against these forms, such as an 8-aminoquinoline, is required for the treatment of infections with P. ovale Cases of cardiomyopathy resulting in cardiac failure, in some cases with fatal outcome, reported during long term therapy at high doses; monitor for signs and symptoms of cardiomyopathy and discontinue chloroquine if cardiomyopathy develops; chronic toxicity should be considered when conduction disorders (bundle branch block / atrio-ventricular heart block) diagnosed; if cardiotoxicity suspected, prompt therapy discontinuation may prevent life-threatening complications QT interval prolongation, torsades de pointes, and ventricular arrhythmias reported; risk is greater if chloroquine is administered at high doses; fatal cases reported; use with caution in patients with cardiac disease, a history of ventricular arrhythmias, uncorrected hypokalemia and/or hypomagnesemia, or bradycardia ( There are no adequate and well-controlled studies evaluating the safety and efficacy of chloroquine in pregnant women; usage during pregnancy should be avoided except in prophylaxis or treatment of malaria when benefit outweighs potential risk to fetus Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants from chloroquine, a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue drug, taking into account potential clinical benefit of drug to mother A: Generally acceptable.
