Hydroxychloroquine manufacturer changed

    For the first time in probably 5 years of taking Hydroxychloroquine, the manufacturer changed. Coincidentally, after about 3 or so weeks of taking it eveything feels different. I was really stable and now I am in a flare that doesn't seem to be leaving anytime soon. Am I crazy to think this change could affect me? If it matters, I am super sensative at times to meds.

    It might be a different filling agent in the new manufactures tablets that you are sensitive to. Maybe there is another brand you can try.

    Kind regards

    My chemist tried to swap me to a cheaper brand... I dug my heels in and took in an article about fillers in the meds....specifically silicone (if I remember correctly )….. anyway they totally disbelieved me...despite my medical background and I was furious. Told them I would be getting my meds elsewhere.... now they source them for me !! Took a bit of a fight though...the other ones definitely made me feel worse.

    It may be worth looking around or asking your chemist to source the ones you were on...expect a lot of eye rolling and sighing...but stick to your guns.
