    Plaquenil renal 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.

    Monitor patients for cardiomyopathy during PLAQUENIL therapy. Chronic toxicity should be considered when conduction disorders bundle branch block/atrio-ventricular heart block or biventricular. The American Academy of Ophthalmology has published several dosing and screening recommendations for hydroxychloroquine to avoid potential retinal toxicity, yet some patients still experience permanent vision loss resulting from hydroxychloroquine retinopathy due to improper dosing of the drug and improper screening. Hydroxychloroquine sulfate HCQ, Plaquenil is an analogue of chloroquine CQ, an antimalarial agent, used for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders. Its use has been associated with severe retinal toxicity, requiring a discontinuation of therapy.

    It is imperative that patients and physicians are aware of and watch for this drug’s ocular side effects. Retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine is rare, but even if the medication is discontinued, vision loss may be irreversible and may continue to progress.

    Background and objectives Hydroxychloroquine is widely used in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. However, large-scale studies examining the long-term effects of hydroxychloroquine on the development of kidney disease in patients with rheumatoid arthritis are lacking. We aimed to assess the long-term association of hydroxychloroquine use with the risk of developing CKD in this population. Feb 19, 2020 Renal clearance in rheumatoid arthritis patients taking PLAQUENIL for at least six months seemed to be similar to that of the single dose studies in volunteers, suggesting that no change occurs with chronic dosing. Range for renal clearance of unchanged drug was approximately 16 to 30% and did not correlate with creatinine clearance; therefore, a dosage adjustment is not required for patients with renal impairment. This occurs when melanin is able to bind to the “High Risk Medication” Plaquenil within the Retinal Pigment Epithelium RPE as well as direct toxicity to retinal ganglion cells. The drugs ability to bind to these pigmented cells creates a “Bulls Eye” around the macula, giving it this very unique appearance.
