I have had a reduced sense of smell for 20 years or more. I used to have the best "smeller" in the state but now it comes and goes. I have had Sjogrens for decades plus 4 other diagnosed autoimmune diseases. I have been on Plaquenil for 14 years or so and I can't say that it has done much for my sense of smell.

It helped me a lot with fatigue and aches and pains and if I went off of it I usually noticed and would have to go back on it. You might have better luck as everyone has a different response to Plaquenil I am thinking as we are all different in how we respond to meds. Good luck. meirish
