    Plaquenil toxicity reversible


    One such commonly used medication for dermatologic and rheumatologic inflammatory conditions is hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil), a chloroquine derivative. It is used to treat many diseases including malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus.

    Hydroxychloroquine sulfate HCQ, Plaquenil is an analogue of chloroquine CQ, an antimalarial agent, used for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders. Its use has been associated with severe retinal toxicity, requiring a discontinuation of therapy. Due to the high risk of flare in systemic lupus erythematosus when discontinuing this medication, continued Plaquenil use is advised in these patients during pregnancy. Small amounts of hydroxychloroquine can be found in breastmilk, but international experts indicate this medication is acceptable while breastfeeding. Plaquenil toxicity isn’t even in the top 10, or the top 100” if you’re looking at incidence, he said. “It’s a pretty rare thing.” Nevertheless, he urged doctors to master the Academy’s new guidelines, because the effects from chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, when they do occur, are severe and often irreversible.

    It is imperative that patients and physicians are aware of and watch for this drug’s ocular side effects. Retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine is rare, but even if the medication is discontinued, vision loss may be irreversible and may continue to progress.

  3. In particular, chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil are two such medications, with the potential for retinal toxicity. Given that the retinal damage from these medications is largely irreversible, screening by a retinal specialist is critical to detect early retinal toxicity to try and limit the extent of visual loss.

    Aug 01, 2009 Plaquenil toxicity is not reversible in most cases and continues to progress even after you stop taking it for several month and sometimes years because of the half life of Plaquenil One should see a retina special before taking Plaquenil in my opinion Plaquenil induced retinal toxicity is reversible if detected early and plaquenil dosage altered or the medication discontinued. Even suspicious early plaquenil toxicity warrants communication with the patient’s treating physician, and meaningful coordination of care would include a report even if the findings are normal. Deferoxamine toxicity is reversible with drug cessation, with full recovery of visual function. However, the medication is often used for chronic conditions, such as thalassemia, that require regular therapy. In these patients, monitoring with frequent ophthalmic exams is essential to detect early vision loss.

    Hi there, I normally post on the arthritis board, and due to toxicity of the Plaquenil after 2 years, I have had to discontinue it, since I failed the visual field testing. I'm sure you do feel like you're losing your mind.(((hugs)))Pat Hi there, I had put a posting about this a few weeks ago on here.
