    My doctor started me on plaquenil in combination with minocycline for my first round of treatment. I thought I had Levaquin, but I just had a look in my medicin box and it wasn't Levaquin, but Plaquenil (I think at some point my dr must have mentionned Levaquin, hence the confusion - and my bad memory played its role too).
