    Plaquenil Eye Exams Plaquenil, also known as hydroxychloroquine, is a medication used in the treatment or prevention of malaria. It has also been used to treat other conditions, such as liver disease, that may have been caused by the same parasites that cause malaria. It has become fairly common practice for most rheumatologists to recommend that patients being treated with hydroxychloroquine be seen for formal visual field evaluation once or twice a year to monitor for retinal toxicity. The previous AAO guideline recommended screening every 12 months. It's fine to get your baseline eye exam a few months after starting the drug. When the rare complication of retinal involvement occurs it is much later on and a result of cumulative, long-term exposure to the drug.

    What can substitute plaquenil hydroxychloroquine. Plaquenil is also known as hydroxychloroquine, so the parent drug Chloroquine can be substituted. But Chloroquine has significantly higher rate of retinal toxicity, so it isn't used much anymore. Also, Plaquenil appears to effectively reduce flares in patients with lupus not necessarily by suppressing immunity.

    Is there a drug that I can take to replace plaquenil?
