    Hydroxychloroquine sulfate Plaquenil is not a sulfa drug. That is a misconception. However, hydroxychloroquine can be associated with serious dermatological side effects including severe rashes. Sulfasalazine azulfidine, salazopyrin belongs to a class of drugs called sulfa drugs. It’s a combination of salicilate the main ingredient in aspirin and a sulfa antibiotic. Sulfasalazine works by slowing the radiographic progression damage to the joints of rheumatoid arthritis, and reducing pain and swelling. May 28, 2016 I can't take sulfa drugs so I haven't researched Azulfidene as much as the others, but it seems to be somewhat less commonly used in this community than Plaquenil and Methotrexate. I was started on Plaquenil two months ago and have had zero side effects beyond the very first dose.
