I have just been given this medication about a week ago. Any advice would be most welcomed. I also take Mobic.
This is interesting. No, I've never heard of it for Osteoarthritis. Who prescribed it for you? A Rheumatologist or your regular doctor? I looked it up, & it says for Malaria, Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, & other conditions. Don't really have an answer, but would be interested in finding out what the others have to say. Have you questioned your doctor about this? Is it helping? DzooBaby will probably be your best bet for an answer. Let us know what you find out, please? Good luck too...
My arthritus dr. prescribed it to me 4 weeks ago as well as Sulfasalazin. I have read it may take up to 12 weeks or more to feel the full effect of the hydroxychloroquine.
I have taken methroxiate and a couple of other arthritus meds. for my knees and hands but after a couple of months on different meds., I came down with side effects. Not sure if I can 'wait' 12 weeks for this med. to work... still in much pain.
