    Hydroxychloroquine poisoning


    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.

    Hydroxychloroquine comes as a tablet to take by mouth. For prevention of malaria in adults, two tablets are usually taken once a week on exactly the same day of each week. The first dose is taken 1 to 2 weeks before traveling to an area where malaria is common, and then doses are continued for 8 weeks after exposure. Plaquenil toxicity is typically asymptomatic in early stages, but over time can lead to severe vision loss and retinal damage. The risk of retinal toxicity was initially believed to be less than 1%. Toxicity from hydroxychloroquine may be seen in two distinct areas of the eye the cornea and the macula. The cornea may become affected relatively commonly by an innocuous cornea verticillata or vortex keratopathy and is characterized by whorl-like corneal epithelial deposits.

    As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits.

    The risk of a toxicity sharply increases after 5 years, with majority of cases of retinotoxicity occurring in patients that have had a cumulative dose exceeding 1000g of hydroxychloriquine Plaquenil. This level is reached in about 7 years with the most common daily dose of Plaquenil, 400 mg/day 200 bid. Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine have a similar dose related risk assessment. 10mg / kg is potentially toxic. Increasing mortality is expected at doses 30mg / kg. 5 grams in adults is fatal without intervention. Children Ingestion of just one tablet can be fatal in the under 6 year. Nov 01, 2015 Hydroxychloroquine is metabolized and secreted by both the liver and the kidneys. Therefore, disturbed renal or hepatic function might reduce HCQ clearance and increase the propensity for toxicity. Older age may also be associated with increased risk of macular toxicity, possibly due to the pre-existence of age-related macular changes that might not allow for the identification of early signs of toxicity.
