    Oct findings with plaquenil toxicity


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    SD-OCT showed loss of the parafoveal inner/outer segment junction, thinning of the parafoveal outer nuclear layer, and a loss of the normal foveal depression, which is characteristic for hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity Figure 3. The estimated risk of hydroxychloroquine retinopathy in patients on chronic hydroxychloroquine therapy ranges from 0.4% to 8.0%. 1 Toxicity is thought to be dependent on cumulative total dose. 3 Additional factors that can precipitate early toxicity are concomitant renal disease and use of tamoxifen. 3 Figure 1. Many systemic medications may cause retinal toxicity. One such commonly used medication for dermatologic and rheumatologic inflammatory conditions is hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, a chloroquine derivative. It is used to treat many diseases including malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus.

Dec 04, 2014 Recently, there has been some focus on the effects of HCQ on the inner retinal layers. In a study by Pasadhika et al. SD-OCT was applied to measure the thickness of certain segments of the retina in three groups of patients Those with clinical evidence of HCQ retinopathy on fundus examination. Recent findings suggest that Plaquenil toxicity can develop among patients that are taking the drug at a daily dose lower than the suggested “safe” dose and/or have been on Plaquenil for shorter than five years. Unfortunately, cessation of Plaquenil intake may not be a remedy since not infrequently.

    Danger in taking Plaquenil and Prednisone if its not Lupus ? Yahoo. You must also make sure to taper EXACTLY as directed by your doctor as not doing so can cause serious issues. If you are having joint pain/inflammation and kidney issues then you should take the prednisone now and continue in confirming your diagnosis of Lupus. As for the plaquenil, this is an 'old school' treatment of Lupus.
