    Fortunately, it was discovered these drugs often are helpful in the treatment of various rheumatic diseases, particularly systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or "Lupus") and rheumatoid arthritis. Although chloroquine is sometimes used, the preferred antimalarial drug is hydroxychloroquine due to its greater safety. It is not possible at the present time to explain precisely why hydroxychloroquine is effective in various rheumatic diseases.

    Detailed Hydroxychloroquine dosage information for adults and children. Includes dosages for Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Malaria Prophylaxis and more; plus renal, liver and dialysis adjustments. With Plaquenil, however, the most commonly prescribed anti-malarial, this sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more. For this reason though, it is important that you see an ophthalmologist for an exam before starting to take an anti-malarial medication for your lupus. The researchers suggest that Plaquenil, “ should be considered as a therapeutic option in all patients with SLE and should be administered using established guidelines so that the proper dose is prescribed not exceeding 6.5 mg/kg of ideal body weight and adequate ophthalmological monitoring is performed.”

    Hydroxychloroquine is a tablet that is best taken with food as it has a slightly bitter taste. When effective, it can decrease damage to the tissues of the joints, skin and other organs in the body.

    Systemic lupus erythematosus SLE, also known simply as lupus, is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue in many parts of the body. Symptoms vary between people and may be mild to severe. Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. Important information. Taking Plaquenil long-term or at high doses may cause irreversible damage to the retina of your eye. Hydroxychloroquine is used for its effect on systemic lupus erythematosus SLE disease activity and long-term benefits. This can be limited by adherence. One way to assess adherence is to measure blood levels. Conflicting data exist regarding blood levels.
