    Is anyone taking or know anything about Hydroxychloroquine?? So in both of your opinions what did it do for you and/or solve for you that you had going on before you started taking it, I am new here so I hope that question in not too personal or offensive. Yes I have to get eye exam, but so far it is once a year. Now I just kinda feel like my organs are bloated, and that’s only sometimes. It takes a few months to build up in the body fully but once it does it helps with the fatigue and pain. As far as the pain, my flair ups are farther apart and last a shorter amount of time.
