A little beer (wheat free), wine or tequila over ice with lime juice (precious...) never seens to bother me. Get asymptomatic, then add that stuff and see how it goes.

As Robb says, symptom-free, then take your cheats (and pay close attention to how they affect you).

My drink of choice, much like Robb's, is a double Patron on the rocks with two limes...not too often though!

Kevin,
It's not potassium, it's magnesium...

As for the anti-malaria medicine, I'd do some labs before punishing your liver with that one...

Has the rheumatologist run any labs to confirm/deny an autoimmune component to your situation?

It's just systemic enzymes from papaya and pineapple, iirc. I've had really good luck with it for inflammation, and have heard (favorable) anecdotal stories about its use in arthritis. Check out the website: http://www.wobenzym.com/
