    Pattern of Retinopathy: Although the locus of toxic damage is parafoveal in many eyes, Asian patients often show an extramacular pattern of damage. Dose: We recommend a maximum daily HCQ use of 5.0 mg/kg real weight, which correlates better with risk than ideal weight.

    Discussion. A risk factor for Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine retinotoxicity is a daily dose that exceeds 5.0 mg of drug per kg of body weight. The tool on the right simply calculates this threshold based on a patient’s real body weight. It’s important to understand that the daily dose is only one risk factor for plaquenil retinotoxicity. Study Finds Blood Levels of Plaquenil may be Important Indicator of Eye Disease Risk New research finds that measuring blood levels of the medication hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil in people with lupus may be an effective way to predict risk of retinopathy, a disease which results in impaired or complete loss of vision. You can go to a normal opticians but make sure they know you are on hydroxychloroquine and expect them to do a peripheral vision field test that involves looking into a machine and pressing a button when you can see a flashing light in various places over a circle within the machine very easy, they can then tell if there is a problem with the peripheral vision which could be caused by the medication.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.

  6. Of course the aim is avoid drug related retinal toxicity, which on ophthalmic examination, appears as the classic Bull’s eye change affecting the macula. Once retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine occurs, it is thought that the retinal changes are permanent and the disease can progress even if hydroxychloroquine is stopped for 1 to 3 years.

    HCQ is cleared by the kidneys and thus renal disease increases the risk of toxicity. Therefore, both dosage and screening frequency may need to be adjusted. Tamoxifen use used in breast cancer treatment increases the risk of toxicity approximately 5 fold 8. The mechanism of this linkage is not understood. The American Academy of Ophthalmology released an updated set of screening recommendations for hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil and chloroquine to account for the many studies that have shown the effects of these medications on the retina 1. It succinctly makes the case for screening, and Plaquenil is the brand name for the prescription drug hydroxychloroquine. It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes.

    Chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium falciparum accumulate significantly less chloroquine than susceptible parasites, and this is thought to be the basis of their resistance.
