    Recent findings suggest that Plaquenil toxicity can develop among patients that are taking the drug at a daily dose lower than the suggested “safe” dose and/or have been on Plaquenil for shorter than five years. In summary, if you have Sjögren’s, hydroxychloroquine may be an option to help your symptoms. Because there are other more effective therapies available to treat dry eyes and dry mouth, it is typically prescribed to help musculoskeletal pain and fatigue. Be patient, as the drug may take up to 6 months to see a beneficial effect. 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

    The most serious adverse effects affect the eye, with dose-related retinopathy as a concern even after hydroxychloroquine use is discontinued. The most common adverse effects are a mild nausea and occasional stomach cramps with mild diarrhea.

  4. I started taking Plaquenil, and I'm supposed to be taking two 200mg pills a day, but I'm only taking one for a week to ease into it. So far I've woken up every morning very nauseous and with a lot of stomach pain and fatigue early in the day plus diarhea. I heard the side effects go away after a while.

    SIDE EFFECTS. The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of PLAQUENIL or other 4-aminoqunoline compounds. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ, sold under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used for the prevention and treatment of certain types of malaria. Specifically it is used for chloroquine-sensitive malaria. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda. It is taken by mouth. This study is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 38 people who take Plaquenil and Lupron depot from Food and Drug Administration FDA, and is updated regularly. On eHealthMe, you can evaluate side effects and drug interactions from 15 million FDA reports.

Although hydroxychloroquine is widely used in Spain, mainly in application to rheumatological disorders, very few cases of intoxication caused by this drug have been reported to date. The present clinical case describes the basic characteristics of hydroxychloroquine intoxication, and provides a review of the guidelines for using the drug.
