    Lori, I'm not medically trained, but here's what I find on the internet for your consideration Plaquenil is a drug used to treat malaria and also in autoimmune conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. The references I have found as to using it in Lyme treatment combine Plaquenil with another medication at the same time. A 70 year old male patient was diagnosed with Lyme disease 6 or 7 months ago. He reported a history of tick bite and rash in 2002. He received a short course of antibiotics at that time. When I saw him initially he complained of knee pain and swelling, fatigue, generalized arthralgia joint pain, numbness and tingling and an irregular heart beat. However, it is very hard to tolerate for most people due to side effects. Hydroxychloroquine is a Quinine-like medication that is easier to tolerate than the Quinine Sulfate, though Quinine Sulfate may be more effective. Side effects of clindamycin that make it hard to tolerate include nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and allergic-type reactions.
