    Plaquenil guidelines for eye monitoring 2016


    Her rheumatologist instructed her to undergo a baseline ocular examination prior to initiating Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine, Sanofi-Aventis) therapy. Toxic maculopathy associated with chloroquine use was first documented in the literature five decades ago.1 In the United States, Plaquenil––an analog to chloroquine––is used to treat a variety of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and several distinct inflammatory disorders. 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.

    One PLAQUENIL tablet contains 200 mg of hydroxychloroquine sulfate, which is equivalent to 155 mg base. Take PLAQUENIL with a meal or a glass of milk. To date, there are no data demonstrating that monitoring blood levels of HCQ is useful in dosing 34 HCQ to prevent retinal toxicity. 35 36 In addition to dose and duration of therapy, other factors must be considered when prescribing 37 HCQ and making recommendations about monitoring. AAO revised guidelines. The AAO published dosing and screening recommendations for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in 2016, revising previous recommendations published in 2011. The current maximum daily HCQ dose recommended by the AAO is 5 mg/kg of real weight. The 2011 guidelines suggested a maximum dose of 6.5 mg/kg of ideal weight.

    Initially, central visual acuity may be unaffected, but the patient may notice related paracentral scotomas that often interfere with reading. The associated classic retinal toxicity is described as a bull’s eye maculopathy (ring of depigmented retinal pigment epithelium that spares the foveal area).

    The goal of monitoring/screening is to identify early macular damage prior to irreversible vision loss or even before visible signs of bull’s eye maculopathy. And although the current guidelines do not discuss the importance of continuous ocular care with an annual comprehensive eye exam, we believe that it is an essential consideration. 1.

Taking Plaquenil long-term or at high doses may cause irreversible damage to the retina of your eye. Stop taking Plaquenil and call your doctor at once if you have trouble focusing, if you see light streaks or flashes in your vision, or if you notice any swelling or color changes in your eyes.

    Does Plaquenil help with Joint Pain? - Autoimmune diseases. NSAIDs alone didn't help my daughter, but adding 5-Loxin was a game changer for her. Immune cells on the attack produce prostaglandins and leukotrienes and sometimes histamine. Medicines that inhibit these can help slow down the autoimmune response and provide symptom relief while DMARDs like Plaquenil need time to work.

    Hydroxychloroquine - Wikipedia Mechanism of action. Hydroxychloroquine increases lysosomal pH in antigen-presenting cells. In inflammatory conditions, it blocks toll-like receptors on plasmacytoid dendritic cells PDCs. citation needed Hydroxychloroquine, by decreasing TLR signaling, reduces the activation of dendritic cells and the inflammatory process.
