I recently attended to see my rhemu consultant and on arriving at the hospital department I noticed that there was a Lupus UK stall set up manned by volunteers. Whilst waiting for my appointment I was approached by a female who informed me she was a nurse with Lupus UK in Scotland and wanted me to add my details onto their database. She also was present during my consultation. I mentioned to them that I was still having problems with Quinoric and asked my rhemu could she write to my GP confirming that I should receive Plaquenil. Both the Lupus UK nurse and the consultant were totally unaware there were any side effects with Quinoric that were making life a misery for a number of Lupus sufferers. I was extremely angry that this nurse who is covering the whole of Scotland had not heard about these problems with Quinoric. I was not best pleased with my consultant either.
