    It would be interesting to see a study of those using wormwood instead of Plaquanil for RA.

    Interesting that becoming I'll elsewhere (lungs, feet pain/discoloration, hands/wrists) seems to increase in some after taking Plaquanil for a few weeks to months after starting even relatively "low doses".
