I've been on 400mg hydroxy for the past 9 months and am decreasing my dose to 200mg. I've recently been experiencing really hot and prickly itchy skin, especially after showering and rubbing my skin. I thought that because my steriod dose has come down, the itch skin is possibly due to a side effect of the hydroxychloroquine which had been blocked by the high doses of steroids I was on.
Still itchy even though I reduced the dose. Has anyone else been on hydroxy and had side effects possibly due to it? If so did you discontinue use and did the side effects go after you stopped?
