I never heard of it (and I'm glad!). What ailment does it treat?

Slowly and surely wins the race.

I have been put on Hydrochloroquine now as disease modifying drug and am struggling with side effects.
It gives me:
- carbohydrate cravings
- nausea about 3 hours after taking it which seems to be reduced by certain carbohydrates
- diarrhea
- gas
- acidity - if I have a low carb meal with it.
- weight gain
I need to find a way of dealing with this and am not sure what to do. My next appointment is in 3 weeks. Will try to call the doctor today, but am not keen on taking more drugs to counter the side effects.
Any tips?
