I normally take 400mg (2 pills) with dinner and then I take my gabapentin pills at bed time. I don't know why or how but I grabbed my hydroxychloroquine bottle and took out two pills and swallowed them and then realized what I had just done! Am I going to be sick? I can't believe I just did that. I feel like such a moron. UGH

You can call a pharmacy or poison control center.

I had to do that when I doubled my advair by accident.

To prevent this get you a pill box.

I doubt it'll make you sick. The medication is used in higher dosages for malaria, just not that high for Lupus.
