    Testing for Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine Retinopathy. Introduction Although the exact mechanism by which chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ - commonly known as Plaquenil induce retinal toxicity is not well understood, but it is recognized as a serious ophthalmologic concern because it is not treatable. 1 Guidelines from the American Academy of Ophthalmology AAO on screening. A study of about 200 patients with a history of hydroxychloroquine retinopathy, including 36 Asian patients, found that the pericentral pattern occurred in half the Asian patients but only 2% of the white patients. 31 The mechanism for this finding is unclear, but because pericentral retinopathy spares the macula, it can be missed using. Although the incidence of macular toxicity is infrequent with Plaquenil use at a dosage of 200mg or 400mg q.d. its visual impact can be devastating. 2,3.

    Plaquenil User Reviews for Rheumatoid Arthritis at I am a 72 year old female, diagnosed with RA 6 years ago. I took Plaquenil 200x2 from 2012-2016, along with Prednisone to start.
