Common hydroxychloroquine side effects may include:
headache, dizziness, ringing in your ears;
nausea, vomiting, stomach pain;
mood changes, feeling nervous or irritable;
skin rash or itching; or.
hair loss.


You sure you haven't been taking it already?

Those above were the common side effects, the more severe are heart disease, liver disease and weakness of muscles including the involuntary movement of the tongue. So think twice before jumping to this cure. Also the majority of those testing positive are either non symptomatic or recover.

What I find odd about the topic is that folks have been taking it for years and years for other issues (Lupus, etc.) yet suddenly, when someone has to take a dose or two, they are being frightened to believe it will kill them. Both can't be right. And I think that Thirty nine (38) is spelled Thirty eight (39)

See Carl, Wayne's already showing confusion!

Those that have been taking the drug for years have weighted the pros and cons along with their Dr. The fact that so many survive Covid anyone with pre existing conditions should certainly think twice about taking a "unproven" cure. Not saying I'd rule it out but I would certainly have to think it over with my Dr.

Okay, thirty nine (40) should average it out.

Absolutely would talk it over with the doctor.
But if I were fighting a loosing battle with the virus I would hesitate to take the medicine.

Lots of variables.

My friend has been taking it twice a day for five years now with no side effects

My understanding is it's not an OTC drug, so someone has to be consulted to get it. That's why it's so odd to hear so much uproar over something that for some, has worked when there was no other option. This is true for so many things out there that I'm waiting for every drug that people use to be "judged" by all these "experts" Or maybe if someone recommends water, that will become the next bad and evil thing for everyone.

Your correct in that a prescription is needed. But in reality those are not that difficult to get. I would imagine most of us see reputable Dr that use good judgment . Believe me there are LOTS that are not. Think the opioid crisis. If the public wants something there are ways legally to obtain it. Iíve seen it all.

In addition to the thoughts above, consider that now, folks with Lupus who depend on that drug find it much harder to obtain.
