Hi not been on here for a while but my last post was about waiting for my appointment at Reumatolgy Clinic a bout 3 months back as you can see from my title still waiting! I did ring them and was told they were behind with their appointments and that I was on the list beginning to think its not going to happen this year. I am at the moment not too bad with my aches and pains but I want to come off the hydroxychloroquin and was told by my G.P to discuss it with my Reumatolgy consultant hence why I would like to receive mu long awaited appointed ! Have any of you come of it and any effects ? Main reason for wanting to stop taking it due to my weight gain must add I've been on it for about 5/6 years now and at one point the G.P who I was seeing at the time said that you can't put weight on by taking Hydroxychloroquin ! I would like to hear your comments please .
