I suffered from gout and psoriatic arthritis. I was put on Hydroxychlorine 400mgs daily 4 months ago which is giving me diarhoea. I reduced the drug to 200mgs and the diarhoea stopped but I was told that I should go back on 400mgs daily. I also take colcichine for gout but perusing the literature, this combination might cause myopathy and muscle weakness. I would like to know if any one of you is on the 2 drugs and whether you suffer from any of the side effects
