    Hello thanks for your time. I started both of these ten weeks ago, I'm on 400mg hydroxy and 25mg of methotrexate. Last week I got in such a state about having to take them and it's got to a point where I constantly feel sick because I'm so anxious of having them, so I've been taken off hydroxychloroquine for two weeks so that now I only have medication on a Monday, I thought this would help. Hydroxychloroquine oral tablet is available as a brand-name drug and a generic drug. Brand name Plaquenil. Hydroxychloroquine comes only as a tablet you take by mouth. Hydroxychloroquine is used to treat malaria, lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis. Hydroxychloroquine is a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It regulates the activity of the immune system, which may be overactive in some conditions. Hydroxychloroquine can modify the underlying disease process, rather than simply treating the symptoms.

    Recently my eyes have felt sore and, after posting a question on this site, I am seeing my GP on Monday. Thanks Hi Catjones I have been taking this combination, started on both of them in January this year.
