I was recently prescribed Quinoric (hydroxychloroquine sulfate) 200mg twice a day and, as it takes so long to take efffect, 5mg Prednisolone steroid once a day to cover the 6-8 weeks it takes to start working. This was a new consultant and he was particularly unhelpful when it came to communicating. despite lots of questions, I came out none the wiser regarding side affects of these drugs. Id be so grateful if anyone can answer the following!..
is such a low doseage steroid enough to cause side effects like bloating and mood swings?
if so, how long does it generally take for the side effects to appear - ie, as Im only on them for 6-8 weeks do i need to worry at all?
Has anyone experienced negative side effects of Quinoric? Ive read that it can cause nausea, which is one of my most life affecting symptoms anyway, hence being on Amitriptyline so I could do without any more!
