      I want to start this drug but have no doctor to give it to me. Anyone know of any online that would prescribe it?

      Hi! I'm 31 soon to be 32 I have seronegative rheumatoid arthritis, fibro, endometriosis, and interstitial cystitis. I currently take hydroxychloroquine and Actemra as well as daily Meloxicam to manage my flairs, plus Lyrica for when my fibro rears its ugly head. Hope you are doing ok, the rain has decided to show back up in my area and damn it hurts. ❤️

      Well. I'm not familiar with that med. But I do hear that yours and mine are very widely prescribed and that it has a good success rate! Just be mindful when you're supposed to take it. Mine is best on a full stomach so I don't get nauseated. Other than that I've been doing okay on mine! I really hope you do too. You got this. 🙏🤗

      Hi 34 with RA+ starting Hydroxychloroquine tomorrow. I’m very nervous about it.

        @Jessica_87 I take that twice a day and methotrexate once a week. I feel like it helps but sometimes the flare ups just suck !!

        @Jessica_87 what makes you nervous? The diagnosis or starting hydroxy chloroquine?

          @ParkersMom Starting the med did. I have done 2 full days now and I haven’t had any adverse reactions. I have a lot of allergies one of which is to steroids and after having that reaction (full body hives with a trip to the ER via ambulance) I am really nervous to start new meds.

        @Jessica_87 I've been on hydroxychloroquine for a couple of years. It's helped with my joints some. It never really gave me any side effects and I always take as recommended. Always with a little food, cuz I have severe gi issues. I actually started on it right before the covid. Then they were all saying that it helps to not get covid. I don't know, but I've never stopped taking it since I started and haven't gotten covid. Plus was around people that had it, including my sister when she was dying from it and when she was first infected. (By the grace of God and a miracle she ended up living, not without issues) So I don't know. She'd been on it longer than me, but they took her off of it when she was in the hospital regarding surgery. Then she got it. 🤷‍♀️ You'll have to see how it works with your body though. Ya know how that goes... Great luck to you!!!
