    Chloroquine toxicity treatment


    Pattern of Retinopathy: Although the locus of toxic damage is parafoveal in many eyes, Asian patients often show an extramacular pattern of damage. Dose: We recommend a maximum daily HCQ use of 5.0 mg/kg real weight, which correlates better with risk than ideal weight.

    Oct 01, 2018 Treatment of uncomplicated malaria due to Chloroquine-sensitive Plasmodium species Adults An initial dose of 1 g salt = 600 mg base followed by an additional 500 mg = 300 mg base after six to eight hours and a single dose of 500 mg = 300 mg base on each of two consecutive days. The usefulness of hypokalemia as an indicator in the evaluation of chloroquine toxicity was studied in a retrospective series of 191 acute chloroquine poisonings. Results indicated that the risk of severe poisoning and death are proportional to the degree of hypokalemia. My question for a person asking if it is safe to take chloroquine would be, how badly were you floxed? As we know FQ’s exhibit cumulative toxicity. From the article I referenced above we know that Chloroquine is a chemical cousin to the FQ’s so it is entirely plausible that Chloroquine would contribute to the cumulative toxicity.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.

    Malaria treatment oral To treat malaria in adults, one dose of oral chloroquine is usually given right away. Then, half the dose is taken six to eight hours later. This is typically followed by half the dose once a day for the next two days. Amebiasis treatment oral To treat amebiasis in adults. Chloroquine is used to prevent or treat malaria caused by mosquito bites in countries where malaria is common. Malaria parasites can enter the body through these mosquito bites, and then live in body tissues such as red blood cells or the liver. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have the same indications and usage, although the dosage regimens are different. Head-to-head comparisons suggest similar responses with equivalent doses, but greater retinal toxicity with chloroquine 2. In dermatology, antimalarial drugs, such as chloroquine, are regarded as appropriate treatments for
