PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP ME FIND A PHARMACY THAT CARRIES ATABRINE! I'M TAKING PLAQUINEL RIGHT NOW, AND IT'S NOT WORKING. I'M FEELING WORSE WEEK BY WEEK. ATABRINE WAS THE ONLY DRUG THAT HELPED MY LUPUS, AND NOW I HAVE A DOCTOR WHO SAYS HE'S NEVER EVEN HEARD OF IT; AND WONT EVEN BOTHER TO TAKE THE TIME TO TRY TO FIND IT FOR ME. IT'S THE ONLY THING THAT MADE BME FEEL BETTER WHEN I HAD A LUPUS FLARE AWHILE AGO; BUT, I LIVE IN A DIFFERENT STATE NOW, AND QUITE A BIT OF TIME HAS PASSED. ## Go to a compounding pharmacy. They have to make it for you "from scratch". Good luck to you!
