    Don't want to take plaquenil anymore - HealthBoards And they also treat in "levels". First they try a level 1 drug like Plaquenil or methotrexate. Then they might go on to a stronger drug like Arava or another DMARDdisease modifying drug. Then you have the big guns like predinisone but since you can't stay on that for long, they go to the biologics like Enbrel or Remicade.

    Can you suggest an alternatives to plaquenil and neoral?
