Suddenly stopping Plaquenil

Hi All, I recently had a usual eye exam b/c of taking Plaquenil for many years. This time they said I had an abnormal peripheral site exam, which they believe is from taking the Plaquenil. My Rheumatologist stopped my Plaquenil suddenly, replaced by nothing at the moment. Yesterday, the office called and said that my ALP blood test (part of the liver panel) was elevated to 174. (I take methotrexate also). So I am also asked by the Rheumatologist to have a bone scan. I've been on the same medications for 5 years. Now I feel like the side effects are turning up at once. Anyone have similar circumstances with med side effects?
