I have also read about antibiotic use with RA but no experience with it. I am curious. Please let us know how it goes if you do try it. I have been on Plaquinal, with good esults - it put the RA to sleep for about 10 years, so well I dropped all meds for several years, until after my son was born, which somehow woke the sleeping tiger. No ill effects whatever. I'm now on Enbrel (a biologic) and Prednisone, and doing well. Between I was put briefly on Methotrexate, which was worse than useless for me - the RA reved up like mad, hence the move to biologics. But really, I would not be afraid of Plaquinal.
