This are not over the counter medications.

In fact, hydroxycholorquine is a malaria drug.

I think you mean hydroquinone.

Both are prescription, and require careful monitoring by your doctor.

I spelled the drug name exactly how Dr. Nair spelled it.. In his response to a customer with a similar condition.

It is a prescription drug.

Must be monitored by your doctor.
