Hello! New here. I'm 28 with recently diagnosed UCTD and inflammatory polyarthritis. I had positive antibodies to scleroderma as well but not enough clinical symptoms to be diagnosed with that for now. I was just started on Prednisone and Plaquenil. I was told about the risks to vision and potential GI upset. How long does it usually take to tell a difference with Plaquenil, and do the side effects lessen as you adjust to being on it? Does anyone here have tips for handling this condition or experience with it transitioning to a more defined CTD? #UndifferentiatedConnectiveTissueDisease #Plaquenil #Gatheringknowledge
