Haven't been on for a while. I am on a range of tablets, one of them being Hydroxychloroquinand have been on this since I was diagnosed with Connective Tissue Disorder in 2005. I take 200mg twice a day and it has certainly helped and I haven't suffered from any bad side effects. Since Monday I have been experiencing really weird flashes in my right eye. I am a migraine sufferer and I thought I was coming down with a migraine as with migraine I usually have distorted vision for about 20 minutes before the pain and once the pain kicks in the vision thing goes away. So I know it is not a migraine, I have a slight headache but nothing much, but the zig zag eye flashes and little black dots will not go away. I got a repeat prescription from my doctors on Monday and the Hydroxy is not the same as I usually get but a generic form. I was wondering if this could be the problem.
I don't have an appointment to see my consultant until the end of June and I don't want to have this for at least another 6 weeks.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
