Long time since I last posted with queries about my symptoms. Long story short, I am now taking hydroxychloroquine for autoimmune arthritis.
All was going well for a couple of weeks, with few side effects and I thought I was starting to notice some improvement in symptoms. Then it hit me, the irritability and mood swings and uncontrollable crying.
This is a listed side effect but I can't afford to mess with my mental health. So, I'm asking a few things:
Will this improve or is it likely to be a long-term side effect? I know everyone is different but is there a chance this could be temporary?
I just need some support from understanding people right now. I have put a brave face on for too long, thinking if I didn't let it become a big deal then it wouldn't be a big deal. The result is nobody knows how much this is messing me up.
I hope you're all doing well.
