    Plaquenil standard of care optometry


    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.

    The article offers information on the 2011 testing guidelines for patients on Plaquenil guidelines in the practice of optometry in the U. S. It presents several risk factors attributed to the development of toxic maculopathy including advanced age and pre-existing retinal disease. Many patients are prescribed plaquenil prior to developing symptoms. If patients are prescribed HCQ early in the disease process then they could be taking the drug for many years. The standard dose for a new patient prescribed plaquenil is 200 mg BID. Is this too much? 2011 Guidelines warned about cumulative dose of 1000g But it was for alleged Plaquenil related eye toxicity, and believe me, attornies will grab any guideline they can as "Standard-of-Care" if it suits their case. All to say, we treat patients, not guidelines, but we all need to aware of these.

    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.

    AAO Screening Guidelines for Plaquenil by S P Check out my recent review/summary of the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s statement on the Recommendations on Screening for Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine Retinopathy 2016 Revision from the Ophthalmology Journal 2016;186-1394. As optometrists, it is important that we are aware of the possible ocular complications that can occur from the use of high risk medications. 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. We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.
