    Can you take hydroxychloroquine for the flu


    They provide flu shots free of charge at my job, but I usually don't get one. I'd rather leave it for the people who really need it--there are a number of older people in my building.

    If you are also taking a certain drug for diarrhea kaolin or taking antacids such as magnesium/aluminum hydroxide, take hydroxychloroquine at least 4 hours before or after these products. Avoid taking an antacid or Kaopectate kaolin-pectin within 4 hours before or after you take hydroxychloroquine. Some antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb hydroxychloroquine. What are the possible side effects of hydroxychloroquine? If you are being given hydroxychloroquine for suppression or treatment of malaria, you should take your tablets as soon as you remember and go back to taking it as you would normally.

    Also, can you get the flu shot with my medications? But with a compromised immune system, is it a good idea to get one anyway?

    Hydroxychloroquine received an overall rating of 7 out of 10 stars from 368 reviews. See what others have said about Hydroxychloroquine, including the effectiveness, ease of use and side effects. Hydroxychloroquine is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria. I take both Plaquenil and Methotrexate and my Rheumotologist has given me the okay for the flu shot. Previously was just on Plaquenil, and was given the shot with no problem. Maybe give your rheumy a call first because each case may be unique.

    Skin & Beauty - Hair Loss / Alopecia Plaquenil and hair loss I have been taking plaquenil for 17 days now for hair loss due to positive ANA test. The doctor said I have lupus in February 2008 but reluctant to take plaquenil due to the possible side effect of hair loss. I have only hair loss and no other lupus related symptoms. For the past couple of days, I notice that the hair loss is getting more intense.

    Is it ok to take ibuprofin and hydroxychloroquine sulfate The treatment of psoriatic arthritis is usually started with NSAIDS ibuprofen being one. While hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil can be used, it is usually avoided in that condition because of the risk of a condition known as 'exfoliative dermatitis' or even worsening the psoriatic arthritis itself.
