Highly allergic to plaquenil so have been on mepacrine for 10 yrs, My dad told me it was prescribed to troops during the war and they all turned bright yellow so that is why my dosage it 4 times a week instead of each day. (I do find it frustrating that it gives me a healthy glow when inside I feel like death!)
I have horrible black marks on my fingernails and toenails and what looks like bruises on one leg and the St T's consultant told me that this is due to deposits from the mepacrine. But the local guy that I saw last week said none of his patients had had this.
Would like to know experiences of anyone else who has tried this drug.
