    The usual hydroxychloroquine dose that is prescribed is 400 mg/day. For this dosage, any woman with an ideal body weight less than 135 pounds would be in the toxic dose range. As one can see, the height that corresponds to an ideal body weight of 135 pounds varies across the formulas. The maximum dose of Plaquenil is 6.5 mg/kg of ideal body weight per day, regardless of whether a person is overweight, underweight, or normal weight. One kilogram kg equals 2.2 pounds. Women with lupus who are OVER their ideal body weight should go by these dosing rules A daily dose of 6.5mg/kg ideal body weight places patients at higher risk, but a daily dose below this level did not preclude the patient from developing toxicity after many years of treatment. A cumulative dose of 1000g of hydroxychloroquine or 460g of chloroquine was likely the largest risk factor, which was typically achieved after 5-7 years of a typical dosage 8, 10.

    The AAO published dosing and screening recommendations for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in 2016, revising previous recommendations published in 2011. The current maximum daily HCQ dose recommended by the AAO is 5 mg/kg of real weight. The 2011 guidelines suggested a maximum dose of 6.5 mg/kg of ideal weight. Previous reports indicate that toxicity is rare if dosing is less than 6.5 mg/kg/day. 2 To avoid overdosage, especially in obese patients or those of short stature, dose should be based on height, which allows for an estimation of ideal body weight.
