    Plaquenil testing review of optometry

    Patients starting chloroquine (CQ) or hydroxychloroquine (HCQ; i.e. Plaquenil) should have a baseline examination that serves as a reference point, as well as to rule out any preexisting maculopathies.

    Optometry has a long history of providing complete eye care. "Look at everything—every time" is a mantra many of us have humming in the background as we go through our clinical day. Accordingly, providing screening examinations for high-risk medications, such as hydroxychloroquine, is a natural service for our profession. The opinion relating to a review of any issue presented or discussed is the sole responsibility of the healthcare provider or medical advisor. The doctor or patient must assume all liability, including, but not limited to, any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, or any other monetary or other damages, or liabilities arising out of or. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy could result in severe and irreversible vision loss without prompt intervention. With so much at stake, optometrists cannot afford to underestimate the importance of screening and early detection.

    The American Academy of Ophthalmology released an updated set of screening recommendations for hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) and chloroquine to account for the many studies that have shown the effects of these medications on the retina (1). While most rheumatologists are now routinely prescribing their patients 400 mg of HCQ (or 250 mg CQ) daily for the management of conditions like systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis, individuals of short stature often have their dosage determined off of their ideal body weight to avoid overdosing.

    Dr. Corte provides a quick reference guide based on the AAO's updated screening guidelines for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil retinopathy. As optometrists, it is important that we are aware of the possible ocular complications that can occur from the use of high risk medications. Newer guidelines state that daily dose 5mg/kg of real weight/day can lead to toxicity. Retinal toxicity is irreversible and can progress after cessation of hydroxychloroquine, thus early screening is important to limit potential vision loss. Baseline screening and annual screening after five years is recommended.

    Is extreme fatigue a side effect of Plaquenil? May 25, 2010 It worked. I never noticed any more fatigue from the Plaquenil. However, I can totally relate to the fatigue and getting your kids off to school and not being able to do much else. I went through that as well. A year later I have more energy and am taking many more drugs to treat this RA.
