Hydroxychloroquine: Safely Used for DECADES to Successfully TREAT rheumatoid arthritis, some symptoms of lupus, childhood arthritis
Let's pretend that facts still matter

"Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD). It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria. Today, it is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, some symptoms of lupus, childhood arthritis (or juvenile idiopathic arthritis) and other autoimmune diseases. It is not clear why hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating autoimmune diseases. It is believed that hydroxychloroquine interferes with the communication of cells in the immune system."

Adversarial bioweapons officials will resist these facts,
It seems that cnn editors chose to ignore these facts, that figures.

Safe use of doctor prescribed Hydroxychloroquine -

"What is hydroxychloroquine?
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.

RELATED INFORMATION
Coronavirus - read our regularly updated advice
Please note, there's no evidence hydroxychloroquine is useful in preventing coronavirus and we have assurance from MHRA that there are no shortages for those already taking it.

Uses
Hydroxychloroquine is used to treat:

rheumatoid arthritis
discoid and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA).
Over the long term hydroxychloroquine can reduce pain, swelling and joint stiffness. If you have lupus, it may also improve the rash. It may be as long as 12 weeks before you notice the benefits.

Hydroxychloroquine is often taken in combination with other drugs such as methotrexate.

Are there any reasons I won't be prescribed hydroxychloroquine?
Before starting on hydroxychloroquine your doctor may take a blood test to check that your liver and kidneys are working normally, but you won't need any regular blood tests during the treatment.

Your doctor will ask you about any problems with your eyesight and may suggest you have a vision test. Hydroxychloroquine won't usually be prescribed if you have maculopathy, problems with the central part of the retina in the eye.

Rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is the UK’s second most common arthritis. It causes joint pain and inflammation. Learn about the symptoms, causes and treatment.

Lupus (SLE)
Lupus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease causing your immune system to attack your body's own tissues - causing inflammation. Learn causes, symptoms and treatments.

How is it taken?
Hydroxychloroquine is taken in tablet form, with or after food.

Your doctor will advise you about the correct dose. Usually you will start on a full dose of 200–400 mg daily, and later your doctor may reduce this. When your condition is very well controlled you may be advised to take hydroxychloroquine only 2–3 times per week.

SHARE THIS SECTION
How long does it take to work?
Hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work immediately. It may be 12 weeks or longer before you notice any benefit. Because it's a long-term treatment it's important to keep taking hydroxychloroquine unless you have severe side effects:

even if it doesn't seem to be working at first
even when your symptoms improve (to help keep the disease under control).
SHARE THIS SECTION
Side effects and risks
Side effects aren't common. However, in some people hydroxychloroquine can cause:

skin rashes, especially those made worse by sunlight
feeling sick (nausea) or indigestion
diarrhoea
headaches
bleaching of the hair or mild hair loss
tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
visual problems.
There's a small risk that hydroxychloroquine can damage a part of the inside of the eye called the retina. And this increases with long-term use and higher dosage.

Your doctor will advise you on a safe dose to take according to your weight, and you will need to have regular monitoring of your eyes."
