I was prescribed Hydroxychloroquine last year by the team at the Royal Free Hospital. After taking it for a few days, I had really bad side effects as I couldn't tolerate the dose. Although I was on the lowest dose that they usually prescribe, I have been advised to take half the tablet for five days a week instead (as I am quite thin).
I am aware that Hydroxychloroquine takes a while to work. If anyone could share their experiences of taking this medication (to encourage me to try again) it would really be helpful, especially any success stories!
At the moment, I have too many other symptoms to deal with. Hopefully, after some in-patient treatment, I should regain some strength to be able to start the Hydroxychloroquine again.
