    How do you take Plaquenil? Oct 11, 2010 Hi I was told to wean my self onto Plaquenil slowly with only half a tablet every other day to begin with and to always take it with food. It took me about a month to get onto a dose of 200mg a day. 200 didn't seem to make much difference so I was told to 'up it' to 400mg a day and it took me another month to taper up to that.
