    Pattern of Retinopathy: Although the locus of toxic damage is parafoveal in many eyes, Asian patients often show an extramacular pattern of damage. Dose: We recommend a maximum daily HCQ use of 5.0 mg/kg real weight, which correlates better with risk than ideal weight.

    The retina is the light sensitive layer at the back of the eye which allows light to be sensed and relayed to the brain so that an image is perceived or “seen” by an individual. This condition where hydroxychloroquine can affect the retina and vision when taken for a long period of time is called “hydroxychloroquine retinopathy”. Up to half of patients treated with the arthritis drug hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil are prescribed more than the recommended maximum amount, according to new research. In separate studies, Canadian and U. S. researchers found that 30 to 50 percent of patients didn’t receive the dose outlined in treatment guidelines; a smaller percentage didn’t get recommended eye exams. Unfortunately, despite their many benefits, both medications, chloroquine Aralen or its analogue, hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, carry with them a very small risk of permanent vision loss. Eye screening by an ophthalmologist is important to help identify any damage to the eye at the earliest stage possible.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.

    Hydroxychloroquine is also used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. Hydroxychloroquine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. What are the possible side effects of hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, Plaquenil Sulfate, Quineprox? Although the incidence of macular toxicity is infrequent with Plaquenil use at a dosage of 200mg or 400mg q.d. its visual impact can be devastating. 2,3. The associated classic retinal toxicity is described as a bull’s eye maculopathy ring of depigmented retinal pigment epithelium that spares the foveal area. Plaquenil toxicity isn’t even in the top 10, or the top 100” if you’re looking at incidence, he said. “It’s a pretty rare thing.” Nevertheless, he urged doctors to master the Academy’s new guidelines, because the effects from chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, when they do occur, are severe and often irreversible.

    I'm scared shitless of the risk that I could start to have vision loss or go blind. I already wear glasses and had eye muscle surgeries as a child so my vision is something I'm paranoid over.31, female FWIW. The decision between disease and medication can be paralyzing.

    Experiences taking Plaquenil for Fatigue and Muscle Pain. I have been on the Plaquenil a little over a month at the full dosage. I think I am starting to see a little less fatigue and some less muscle pain. Joint stuff is taking a little longer. Side effects have gotten better. In the first month I had some GI issues but that didn't last too long. Just having less fatigue is a huge thing.
