    If you are taking hydroxychloroquine over a long duration, it is important to take eye exams every 6 to 12 months. 6 Do not take hydroxychloroquine if you experience vision symptoms, including problems seeing or reading, light sensitivity, blurred distance vision, or light flashes or streaks. 5 Both Sjogren's and Plaquenil can increase skin sensitivity to sunlight. There are other medications that can cause photosensitivity too. and the light bulb came. Plaquenil is the brand name for the prescription drug hydroxychloroquine. It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others.

    Then I googled fluorescent lighting and lupus and saw in Wikipedia, that the UV light from these lights can cause a flare. Does anyone else feel "not right" or "Unwell" also when they are shopping in large stores? One hour under fluorescent lights is equivalent to 15 minutes of sun exposure. They have to be taken to a hazardous materials waste site. I would like to see a study that says 1 hr flourescent equals 15 minutes of sun!! Included was a MAJOR migraine (which I never get) I asked them to remove some of the fluorescent bulbs over me and it helped.
