Hi I have been recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritus and so far have been given hydroxychloroquine and am waiting to start methotrexate too.

However, the hydroxychloroquine has caused me to have episodes of confusion and heightened anxiety at work. I can taste the medicine in my mouth even hours after taking it. Is this normal?

    I've taken hydroxy (with meth) for years with no side effects. You could always check the leadlet that comes with them. Failing that try www.drugs.com

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
