    Visual field for plaquenil


    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.

    Abnormal test is the visual field test, you may be asked to repeat it to make sure of the results. You will be told if any other tests are necessary and when you should be screened again. In cases of possible retinopathy, you will be recommended to continue taking 8 9 Macular Society Eye screening for patients taking hydroxychloroquine Nov 18, 2011 Although visual field defects in HCQ toxicity can be highly variable in terms of the depth of defect, all our patients showed a similar pattern on 10-2 white, with the same areas affected. However, one needs to look carefully for subtle decreases in threshold in the area at risk 2–6 degrees from center. Patients taking Plaquenil should have an early baseline assessment of visual acuity, macular appearance and central field sensitivity. The macular appearance and function should be checked at intervals of 6 to 12 months. Factors such as renal or liver impairment must be considered in the dosing of this medication.

    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.

    Apr 10, 2019 Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine belongs to a group of medicines called quinolines. Plaquenil is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. Hydroxychloroquine retinopathy is thought to be infrequent but of increasing prevalence because patients use the drug for many years or have undue exposure from overdosage or renal failure. 1 Screening in previous decades was primarily by subjective functional measures, such as the central visual field. Alot of the concerns are related to the problems caused by chloroquine, the predecesor to hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil. It was much more toxic to the retina and much more likely to cause permanent visual problems. Hydroxychloroquine, on the other hand, is much less toxic to the retina and there have been fewer reported eye problems.

    Methotrexate and plaquenil - @Kristinsaba1988 - Scleroderma - 20151009. The fatigue is still considerable on some days, but overall I feel 110% better than I did. I was unable to work before taking these drug and now I am back to working full time and I spent this entire weekend enjoying my grandkids! I have also been able to step the prednisone bake to no more than 5 Mg every two days which is a big plus.
