    Summary Drug interactions are reported among people who take Methotrexate and Plaquenil together. This study is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 23,242 people who take Methotrexate and Plaquenil from Food and Drug Administration FDA, and is updated regularly. I am on both methotrexate and plaquenil. I have been on plaquenil for over a year and a half and methotrexate since September. I have had no side effects from either one. I get my eyes checked every six months and I am now at once a month on blood work for my liver enzymes used to be every 2 weeks. Methotrexate–hydroxychloroquine combination therapy may cause lower disease activity in early RA than methotrexate monotherapy. Methotrexate monotherapy as first early RA treatment seems to lead to more treatment intensification.

    Recently my eyes have felt sore and, after posting a question on this site, I am seeing my GP on Monday. Thanks Hi Catjones I have been taking this combination, started on both of them in January this year.
