 4  SLE & SS not drug induced In 2005 I was administered this pill at full strength. Soon after I got a shoulder rash and some blurry vision at BREAKFAST time when I would take the pill. Was told not to take it soon after. Since late 2015 I eat with food and drink at nearly same time--LUNCH time. I gradually increased from 50 to 100 to 200mg. Include eating dark leafy greens cooked every week to MAINTAIN vision. Still continuing and I hope it suppresses my immune system so that I can "slow down" and increase WBC. During 1997 I was checked by an MD and was told I could get SLE, SS, RA from having low WBC. F 60

 1  Rheumatoid Arthritis Severe diarrhea, vitreous detachment in both eyes, tinnitis Was taking this with methotrexate. Side effects started with the vitreous detachment and have major floaters and blurred vision. Next thing I noticed was the ringing in my ears (VERY ANNOYING). Then I started to experience severe diarrhea and found it difficult to even leave my home. Hate this medication! Have been off it now for a week and will NEVER take it again! F 63 2 years

HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE SULFATE  (HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE SULFATE):  Hydroxychloroquine is used to prevent or treat malaria infections caused by mosquito bites. It does not work against certain types of malaria (chloroquine-resistant). The United States Center for Disease Control provides updated guidelines and travel recommendations for the prevention and treatment of malaria in different parts of the world. Discuss the most recent information with your doctor before traveling to areas where malaria occurs. This medication is also used, usually with other medications, to treat certain auto-immune diseases (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis) when other medications have not worked or cannot be used. It belongs to a class of medications known as disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). It can reduce skin problems in lupus and prevent swelling/pain in arthritis, though it is not known exactly how the drug works.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
