Based on my research, HCQS contains Hydroxychloroquine as the active ingredient. Hydroxychloroquine belongs to the family of medicines called antiprotozoals. It is used to prevent and to treat malaria as well as some other conditions such as liver disease caused by protozoa. It is also used in the treatment of arthritis to help relieve inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain as well as to help control the symptoms of lupus erythematosus (lupus; SLE).

You should contact your doctor if any of these other side effects occur:

Blurred vision or eye problems, wheezing or trouble breathing, severe or bloody diarrhea.

Less serious side effects:

Headache, nausea or upset stomach, diarrhea, appetite loss, bleaching of hair or loss of hair.

If you notice other side effects that you think are caused by this medicine, tell your doctor.

I am 48 years old and have been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for the past four years now. I am taking saaz tablets. Still suffering from joint pain and all, what is the solution? How long should I take this medicine? Also, are hcqs and saaz classified as steroid medications? Please advise.
