It is listed as having a mild immunosuppressant effect in my book on RA, but one of the reasons for the blood tests is to check that your immune system is not being suppressed too much eg checking your white blood cell levels, so you shouldn't be completely vulnerable.

    Chloroquine - Wikipedia Chloroquine binds to heme or FP to form the FP-chloroquine complex; this complex is highly toxic to the cell and disrupts membrane function.
