    If you are taking Plaquenil to treat an inflammatory condition or malaria, you should be aware of the side effects that may occur to your eyes and vision. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is in a class of drugs called disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, which are used to decrease inflammation, pain and joint damage. Feb 19, 2020 Hydroxychloroquine sulfate is a colorless crystalline solid, soluble in water to at least 20 percent; chemically the drug is 2-4-7-Chloro-4-quinolylaminopentylethylamino ethanol sulfate 11. PLAQUENIL hydroxychloroquine sulfate tablets contain 200 mg hydroxychloroquine sulfate, equivalent to 155 mg base, and are for oral administration. Jan 05, 2020 Annual screening should begin after 5 years of drug use for most patients, but should commence sooner in those where major risk factors are present. Annual screening should include both automated visual fields and SD-OCT.

  6. HCQ Hydroxychloroquine is an antimalarial drug used to treat or prevent malaria. It is highly effective against erythrocytic forms of Plasmodium, but not effective against exoerythrocytic forms of parasites. Hydroxychloroquine is also used to treat symptoms of acute or chronic rheumatoid arthritis and lupus erythematosus.

    Newer guidelines state that daily dose 5mg/kg of real weight/day can lead to toxicity. Retinal toxicity is irreversible and can progress after cessation of hydroxychloroquine, thus early screening is important to limit potential vision loss. Baseline screening and annual screening after five years is recommended. Jan 01, 2020 Plaquenil is indicated for the treatment of uncomplicated malaria due to P. falciparum, P. malariae, P. ovale, and P. vivax. Plaquenil is indicated for the prophylaxis of malaria in geographic areas where chloroquine resistance is not reported. Limitations of Use in Malaria • Plaquenil is not recommended for the treatment of complicated malaria. Our patient demonstrates the importance of using the new recommended screening tools for the detection of early hydroxychloroquine toxicity. 10-2 HVF, SD-OCT, autofluorescence, or mfERG might have detected the hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity on the day of her presenting symptoms and possibly earlier, potentially limiting the amount of visual loss.

    You Be the Expert Plaquenil Exam Question What diagnosis code should we use for OCT when the patient is currently on Plaquenil but not yet showing signs of macular degeneration, and there is no other diagnosis available that meets the CMS LCD requirements? Answer There is probably no way you can get reimbursed for optical coherence tomography OCT to check whether a drug a patient is taking is affecting his vision.
