Took chloroquine 44 years ago for lupus.
At that time, the gov’t. only allowed a certain amount for a lifetime.
As it can really effect eyes had to have an eye exam every 3 months.

Other articles regarding this story have brought to light that this couple purchased an aquarium cleaner that contained Chloroquine. They bought it at a pet store to use as a preventative against Covid-19. They grossly misunderstood. The toxic ingredient they consumed was not the pharmaceutical form of chloroquine, used to treat malaria in humans. Instead, it was an ingredient listed on a parasite treatment for fish. What in the world were they thinking?!
“A man has died and his wife is under critical care after the couple, both in their 60s, ingested chloroquine phosphate, an additive commonly used at aquariums to clean fish tanks. Within thirty minutes of ingestion, the couple experienced immediate effects requiring admittance to a nearby Banner Health hospital,”

Unfortunately there are a number of preppers out there who do not do the research behind Rx drugs and fish drugs.
And we see the results.

This wasn’t even a fish drug? It was an aquarium cleaner?
Natural selection in action.

But it had that one, key word in it right? So it must be ok!
I know of more than a few people (not going to call them preppers) who self-medicate thinking they know better than everyone else.

I was sad to hear that the gent died. One moment of poor judgement and a man is dead. On another forum someone nominated them for the Darwin award, and sadly he was right
