My dermatologist is adding 100 mg/day of Quinacrine to my 400 mg/day Plaquenil. Had to order it from a pharmacy in California because it's not made at all here in Texas.
I have the worst skin ever. Lesions across my face, on my arms, fingers, chest, scalp, in my ears, etc... even places I don't want to talk about :[ 30+ SPF moisturizer every day, never in the sun... and nothing has worked. Have tried MTX and currently on CellCept... zero results. Using Halog as a general steroid topical for everything skin-related.
I read that yellow skin discoloration is a side effect? I also usually get GI stuff, so I'm worried about that. Does anyone have good/bad experiences to share about this combo?
