    What is Plaquenil Hydroxychloroquine? Plaquenil is most known for its original purpose treating and preventing malaria. Malaria is a disease caused by parasites that can enter the body through a mosquito bite. The essential ingredient, known as quinine, is derived from the bark of the cinchona plant.

    Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is an effective medication for autoimmune conditions and malaria that comes with less side effects than other DMARDs. Prevents and treats malaria, and also treats a type of bowel infection. In the treatment of SLE, Plaquenil is widely regarded as a cornerstone drug in the management of skin & arthritis symptoms. History of Antimalarials The history of antimalarials dates back to the 1630s in Peru, where, in all likelihood, malaria was not endemic, and an extract from the “fever tree,” which grew on the eastern slopes of the Andes. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ belongs to the group of antimalarial agents, which recognition of its benefit in other diseases except malaria dates back to 1894, when Payne reported that quinine was effective in cutaneous lupus. Since then, therapeutic effects of antimalarial agents were shown in a myriad of other diseases and the evidence for its potential benefit continues to grow.
