    Jan 18, 2019 Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil was originally used to treat malaria and is now used mostly to treat rheumatological and dermatological diseases. Its most frequent use now is for Rheumatoid Arthritis RA and Lupus and is often very effective in mitigating the joint and arthritic symptoms these diseases can cause. Plaquenil can cause serious vision problems that aren't always reversible. Tell your doctor immediately if you notice any changes in vision or if you've ever had vision changes while taking. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ is a 4-aminoquinoline which differs from chloroquine CQ in the addition of a hydroxyl group. Initially used as antimalarials, both drugs have now become mainstays in the management of rheumatic diseases principally systemic lupus erythematosus SLE and rheumatoid arthritis RA.

    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.
