Has anyone experienced weakness/shaky feeling while taking the plaquenil? At CVS, they carried the generic made by Sandoz, maybe they cut a deal with them to give the name brand for the generic price. I had a few good weeks of feeling almost back to normal and it's been a rough few days to slide back. If it's generic, they shouldn't have charged you that much!
