Plaquenil - side effects?

  1. Have any of you ever cared for a patient who had been taking Plaquenil for long periods?? I'm asking in regards to side effects from long term use. My fiance has been prescribed this med. for SLE and the possible side effects sound worse than the problem it is meant to treat to me. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank You
