    Dosing. Hydroxychloroquine is generally prescribed at a daily dose of 6.5 milligrams or less per kilogram of body weight. Using this formula, the dosage for a 150-pound person would be 443 mg/day, as one kilogram equals 2.2 pounds. Because HCQ is formulated as a 200 mg tablet, many people taking it for lupus will take two pills per day. Doses ≥ 5 mg/kg/day real weight of hydroxychloroquine 2.3 mg/kg/day of chloroquine are associated with higher risk of toxicity. Doses lower than 5 mg/kg/day have low risk 1% for the first 5 years, and below 2% between 5-10 years of use. The longer you use the medication, the higher the risk of toxicity. Abstract Background The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools.

    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.
