Would be interested to hear of anyones experiences with Mepacrine. I was diagnosed with DLE 4 months ago and my head, face neck and chest has been covered in the rash for that time.
Did a course of preds first and when i was on 30 mg a day things were not to bad but as soon as i came down i felt terrible and my skin got really bad.
Was then put on Hydroxychlorine but that really didn't agree with me and had to come straight off.
I have now been put on Mepacrine which is a result of various doctors looking at me at the royal london hospital.
Have looked at the side effects, how yellow does your skin go???
