    Apr 10, 2019 To treat malaria Plaquenil is usually given for 3 days, starting with one high dose followed by a smaller dose during the next 2 days in a row. Take Plaquenil for the full prescribed length of time for malaria. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. The majority of cases of retinotoxicity have occurred in patients that have had a cumulative dose exceeding 1000g of hydroxychloriquine Plaquenil. This level is reached in about 7 years with the most common daily dose of Plaquenil, 400 mg/day 200 bid. Several risk factors may increase the likelihood of retinal toxicity from Plaquenil such as, age of greater than 60 years, daily dose more than 6.5 mg/kg; use of the drug more than 5 years, obesity, preexisting retinal disease and, renal or liver failure.

    Taking hydroxychloroquine long-term or at high doses may cause irreversible damage to the retina of your eye. Hydroxychloroquine is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus.

  7. Has anyone experienced plaquenil toxicity with damage to eyes? I have only been taking plaquenil for 18 mths and recently found out that i have macula degeneration, my last eye exam was only 6 mths ago and there was no sign of anything then. i strongly advise 6 monthly eye exams and if there is the slightest blurring of vision get it checked out.
