    A risk factor for Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine retinotoxicity is a daily dose that exceeds 5.0 mg of drug per kg of body weight. The tool on the right simply calculates this threshold based on a ppatient’s real body weight. It’s important to understand that the daily dose is only one risk factor for plaquenil retinotoxicity. May 02, 2007 I also had to get a baseline exam prior to taking the Plaquenil and my rheumy was very serious when he said not to take them until I had the exam. They have to examine you to see if you have anything of concern that they can determine that is NOT caused by Plaquenil which is why the baseline exam is important. Jan 18, 2019 The recommendation is to have a baseline eye exam with dilation and a visual field test before or soon after starting the drug. A repeat of that exam should occur every year IF there is no evidence of toxicity.

    I am also on low dose prednisone, I have taken prrednisone daily for 18 months at levels ranging from 2.5 mg to 5 mg...periodic boosts to 60 mg with a fast taper back down to 5 mg. I would like to make sure they continue to follow the proper guidelines.
