    Plaquenil - Brand name vs Generic DailyStrength I have been taking brand name Plaquenil for nearly 2 years and it has done a great job keeping my RA under control, that is until last week. The druggest didn't have any brand name Plaquenil so substituted the generic, within several days I started having flare-up symptoms - stiffness, pain, exhaustion, etc etc.

    Any difference with Brand Plaquenil or Generic - HealthBoards
