    Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is considered an older DMARD disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug. Plaquenil was actually first classified as an antimalarial drug, but it is also used to treat certain rheumatic and autoimmune conditions which are unrelated to malaria. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine and Rheumatrex and Trexall methotrexate are used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Plaquenil is also used to treat or prevent malaria, and to treat symptoms of discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. Rheumatrex and Trexall are also used to treat some cancers and severe skin diseases such as severe psoriasis.

    The good news is that hydroxychloroquine targets the immune system without causing an increase in the risk of infection or cancer that can be seen with other immunosuppressant medications. The typical dose for hydroxychloroquine is 200-400mg per day and is based on a person’s body weight or if you are overweight, your ideal body weight. Plaquenil is a slow-acting drug, meaning that it can take up to 6 months to experience the full benefits of this medication, but it is possible for symptoms to improve in as few as 1 or 2 months. Plaquenil and other antimalarials are the key to controlling lupus long-term, and some lupus patients may be on Plaquenil for the rest of their lives. Re Plaquenil - Can It Work Quickly? I tried to get on Plaquenil years ago, and couldn't tolerate it, but now I'm thinking there might be a lessor dose I should try. I'm new to the area, so don't have a rheumy yet.

    Hydroxychloroquine dosage recommendations often ignored. Based on the 2011 recommendations from the AAO and ACR, 17% of the patients were receiving an HCQ overdose that was more than 10% above the recommended dosage, and another 13% received a smaller overdose. If the 2016 dosage guidelines were applied, the extent of overdosing might be even greater, Dr. Koppikar said.
