One such commonly used medication for dermatologic and rheumatologic inflammatory conditions is hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, a chloroquine derivative. There is no single best test for detecting hydroxychloroquine toxicity. However, SD-OCT and VF are good screening tests, and FAF and mfERG can help confirm a diagnosis of suspected retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine. Early detection of toxicity is critical to prevent permanent visual loss. 1. Jorge A, Ung C, Young L, Melles RB, Choi HK.

    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.

    Of course the aim is avoid drug related retinal toxicity, which on ophthalmic examination, appears as the classic Bull’s eye change affecting the macula. Once retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine occurs, it is thought that the retinal changes are permanent and the disease can progress even if hydroxychloroquine is stopped for 1 to 3 years. Plaquenil is manufactured in only a 200 mg tablet The typical dosage is either 200 or 400 mg per day 200 mg daily puts anyone under 68 pounds at risk1 400 mg of Plaquenil daily puts anyone under 135 pounds at a higher risk for toxicity Therefore, 200mg of Plaquenil daily is going to be a safe dosage for virtually all adults13 Background/Aims Hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy may result in severe and irreversible vision loss, emphasising the importance of screening and early detection. The purpose of this study is to report the novel finding of early optical coherence tomography OCT abnormalities due to HCQ toxicity that may develop in the setting of normal Humphrey visual field HVF testing.

There are other drugs similar to Plaquenil Prednisone, Methodextrate, etc but he will face the same risks with all of them. All work by suppressing the immune system.
