Thanks Northern Exile
I have been taking tablets once a week for the last 6 weeks, also taking folic acid on the other days of the week, and have been taking hydroxychloroquine for years!

I see. I expect you're on 20mg and will be having regular blood tests? There's not much I can really say other than to keep an eye on your red blood cell count and if necessary take steps to get it up (Floradix is good).

I found injections much less debilitating than tablets.

Yes, 20mg and lots of bloods! Thank you Northern Runner, I might ask my consultant about injections if things don't improve!

Got something to say?
