60 yr old female diagnosed with RP 5 months ago. Dr. prescribed Hydroxychloroquine 200 mg 2 times a day and prednisone 5mg once a day. Have started having severe nausea average 2 days out of 3. Not from vertigo (have that some also). I would like to know if this is problematic with this medicine or part of the symptoms of the disease. Since this disease seems to be very rare there's really no one to talk to about this. I've seen two specialist and both say it affects everyone differently and there's not alot of info available.
