    I've wondered if respiratory problems while taking Plaquenil is from parasites (non-malarial) are being chased into other tissues?

    Sweet wormwood seems to work better than Plaquanil for some.

    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".
