My son was diagnosed with MCTD (Mixed Connective T...

  • My son was diagnosed with MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder) form of Lupus at the age of 10. He was put on Plaquenil and remained on it for 10 years. He had a relatively normal childhood and teenage years. Now fast forward at the age of 23 he was experiencing psychotic episodes where he attempted to take his own life. We have been on a rollercoaster since. He is now 27 years old and still lives with my husband and I and finds it hard to keep a job. It always remained in the back of my mind, could this be an effect of being on Plaquenil at such a young age when there is no family history of mental illness?
