HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE, please explain???

hi everyone,
I went to see my consultant today, he said after running ALL blood tests for Lupus etc, they came back negative apart from the Shrimers test, that was positive. However due to my symptoms he want to start me on one asprin a day and a drug called Hydroxychloroquine. (I made him write it down), I have no idea why he wants to give this to me as the tests came back negative, also what will this do for me. Even though as I say again, negative tests, he does want to see me again. I asked him DO I HAVE LUPUS....he couldnt really say yes but I kind off got the feeling he want saying no either....bit confused here.
Has any else had this drug, how does it work, what is it for?.....Thanks..
