It's really mad and painful it hurts so much and I just feel like sleeping all the time I have took quinoric before but seemed to contribute to my headaches the plaquenil is OK for me they both have the same ingredients hydroxychloroquine but the quinoric is a more cheaper approach on the nhs I will have the mention there headaches to my good thanks anyway

Hi I too suffer with headaches regardless of taking or not taking the medication. I would feel like my head was in a vice grip constantly, have visual problems and was unsteady on my feet. I also suffer with blackouts. Ive had the lot - CT scans, MRI and nothing. I do have my eyes checked on a regular basis as ive been on hydroxy for years as suffered with swelling at the backs of my eyes and haemorrhages to the vessels. Have they done a lumbur puncture to measure the pressure?
