Once thought to be safe at a daily dose of 6.5mg/kg/day 16, newer studies show that many years of hydroxychloroquine treatment at a "safe dose" can still lead to toxicity 6. Newer guidelines state that daily dose 5mg/kg of real weight/day can lead to toxicity. Significant risk factors for retinal damage include daily doses of hydroxychloroquine sulfate greater than 6.5 mg/kg 5 mg/kg base of actual body weight, durations of use greater than five years, subnormal glomerular filtration, use of some concomitant drug products such as tamoxifen citrate and concurrent macular disease.
