Based on the 2011 recommendations from the AAO and ACR, 17% of the patients were receiving an HCQ overdose that was more than 10% above the recommended dosage, and another 13% received a smaller overdose. If the 2016 dosage guidelines were applied, the extent of overdosing might be even greater, Dr. Koppikar said. The American Academy of Ophthalmology AAO based its 2016 recommendations on a retrospective study of 3,482 Kaiser Permanente patients in Northern California taking HCQ for at least five years. The AAO concluded that the safe daily dose of HCQ is no more than 5mg/kg a day as dispensed by pharmacy.
