Hi FlowerWoman

I take Mepacrine along with Aralen ( chloroquine) the slightly stronger version of Plaquenil. The combination is excellent for me vastly improving skin, arthralgia and fatigue & mood. I really notice if I drop the dose. I also take 50mgs Imuran a day
I am photosensitive but don't have headaches, or flares in fluorescent lighting.

Mepacrine is known as Quinacrine in the USA

Hi Bumble bee, thanks for the reply! Yes mepacrine deffinately helps the skin i used to get terrible crusty itchy patches before taking it and sometimes a really large ulcerated rash on my leg about 10"long and the only place i have a problem with now are the soles of my feet....they get so crusty and crack,bleed sometimes and itch at night and keep me awake...it drives me mad...i moisturise my skin constantly with doublebase gel prescribed by my GP and that helps but still cant seem to solve the foot problem! Thanks again x
