Hydroxychloroquine

Hi

where can I find information regarding this medication and possible side effects etc.

Recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Osteoarthritis with inflammation pockets in hands, feet, knees and now back and hip. I have Inflammation but no Rheumatoid factor showing in bloods. Have had IM DepoMedrone injection waiting to see if it works but was told I may need to go onto Hydroxychloroquine if injection doesn’t help.

Any advice appreciated

many thanks

    My go to site for drug info is www.drugs.com.

    But hydroxy is a very mild DMARD. I've taken it for years alongside methotrexate.

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

    I think Versus Arthritis also have a page on this on their main website, the NHS also does
