Hydroxychloroquine

I've just realised my latest prescription for this has a different name to my usual, and I've gone downhill health wise. The latest is called Quinoric, does anyone know if the change could have a negative effect?

Thanks.

And yes I'm going to speak to the doctor but can take a while.

Can anyone offer any personal experiences please?

Hi, i have had both plaquenil and quinoric as well as hydroxy for the past four years, and never noticed any difference between them. I am on 400 mgs a day. What are you taking it for? Perhaps yr entire drug regimen needs changing?

Hi. I'm on 400 mg a day too. It's for lupus. I've heard it's a cheaper brand than the one I'm used to and that they don't work as well but also heard the work exactly the same. (Strange as they have the same ingredient).

Thanks for the reply smile
