Has anyone been treated with normal Quinine? I have been taking Plaquenil since being diagnose a year ago. I was feeling better but I still experienced pain, fatigue and depression especially when trying to do all the things that I used to be able to. Sometimes I would drink Tonic Water and within about an hour I would feel better. ( My daughter had Ross River Virus and found that this helped her flare ups. - I wish I had known about that when I had Ross River ) Anyway, this Christmas I did a little experiment where I just took the Plaquenil for a couple of weeks with no extra Tonic Water. I did not fare well. Then I took only 1 or 2 large glasses of Tonic Water daily and no Plaquenil for a couple of weeks. I have been doing better on the Tonic Water. However I know that that is a very inconscistent and would be better taking proper measured tablets. Has anyone tried normal Quinine?
