    AAO Screening Guidelines for Plaquenil. Check out my recent review/summary of the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s statement on the Recommendations on Screening for Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine Retinopathy 2016 Revision from the Ophthalmology Journal 2016;186-1394. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is in a class of drugs called disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, which are used to decrease inflammation, pain and joint damage. While today it is used to treat autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, it was originally used as an anti-malaria drug. Aug 06, 2014 Hydroxychloroquine, sold under the brand name Plaquenil Sanofi-Aventis, is an antimalarial drug that has gained widespread use in treating various autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. 1 By some estimates, more than 150,000 patients are on long-term therapy with this medication in America alone. 2 Retinal toxicity associated with HCQ use is.

    Background: The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine (CQ) and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools. While most rheumatologists are now routinely prescribing their patients 400 mg of HCQ (or 250 mg CQ) daily for the management of conditions like systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis, individuals of short stature often have their dosage determined off of their ideal body weight to avoid overdosing.

    Many patients are prescribed plaquenil prior to developing symptoms. If patients are prescribed HCQ early in the disease process then they could be taking the drug for many years. The standard dose for a new patient prescribed plaquenil is 200 mg BID. Is this too much? 2011 Guidelines warned about cumulative dose of 1000g With Plaquenil Plaquenil is manufactured in only a 200 mg tablet The typical dosage is either 200 or 400 mg per day 200 mg daily puts anyone under 68 pounds at risk1 400 mg of Plaquenil daily puts anyone under 135 pounds at a higher risk for toxicity Therefore, 200mg of Plaquenil daily is going to be a safe dosage for virtually all adults13 My Take on New Ocular Screening Guidelines for Plaquenil By Sergio Schwartzman, MD 12 October 2016 A recent article published by the American Academy of Ophthalmology AAO presented new recommendations for screening of patients being managed with hydroxychloroquine HCQ.
