    PLAQUENIL hydroxychloroquine sulfate tablets is indicated for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, and discoid and systemic lupus erythematosus, in patients who have not responded satisfactorily to drugs with less potential for serious side effects. Plaquenil comes in 200 milligram mg tablets that are taken by mouth. To prevent malaria in adults, two tablets are typically taken once a week, on the same day each week. In some cases, higher doses can be used. It is recommended one tablet twice daily if taking more than one tablet. It is recommended to be taken with food. Symptoms can start to improve in one to two months, but it may take up to six months before the full benefits of this medication are experienced.

    The most serious adverse effects affect the eye, with dose-related retinopathy as a concern even after hydroxychloroquine use is discontinued. The most common adverse effects are a mild nausea and occasional stomach cramps with mild diarrhea.

Many patients are prescribed plaquenil prior to developing symptoms. If patients are prescribed HCQ early in the disease process then they could be taking the drug for many years.
