    Does hydroxychloroquine lower blood sugar


    The last few days have been horrible with me very near passing out. My rheumy hasn't been all that helpful as she left it up to me and plaquenil is usually the milder med isn't it? But I don't get the low blood sugar, I know that for a fact. As I mentioned in another topic, I went for acupuncture today and it has eased all my symptoms tremendously for now. I'm feeling somewhat ok and I think it's thanks to the icecream I ate about a half hr ago but already I'm getting that horrible feeling again. I'm hoping the the BS angels will drop down on me and give me reasonable readings. The only problem I've ever had with the plaquinel is headaches. I truly wish I could I'm not sure where to go from here. I've experienced extreme dizziness, vertigo and nausea. I'll try half for the next few days and see if there's any improvement.
