Hydroxychloroquine tablet is not a steroid tablet. It belongs to a class of medications called antimalarials and is primarily used to treat malaria, as well as certain autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.

Hydroxychloroquine works by interfering with the communication between cells in the immune system, reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune response. Steroids, on the other hand, are a separate class of medications that work by reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune system's activity. While both hydroxychloroquine and steroids can be used to treat inflammatory conditions, they have different mechanisms of action and are used for different purposes.
