Well on the advice of the nurse I stopped the Hydroxychloroquine for a week and restarted them this week. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like this is the right medication for me. All the side effects I was experiencing came back with a vengeance. I persevered even taking an antihistamine along with it hoping they would help alleviate them. No such luck so back on the phone to the nurse. My consultant is off for 2 weeks so she spoke to the Senior RA on call and he said to stop them immediately. Unfortunately as I have somewhat complicated medical issues he doesn’t want to give me anything until my consultant is back. However, the nurse did say that he thinks it may be easier if I get injections instead of tablets. Now just have to wait 2.5 weeks until Dr Hauser returns from her holidays.
