Plaquenil Information:

Plaquenil (Hydroxychloroquine) is a medication used to treat or prevent certain strains of malaria, a disease commonly caused by parasites from mosquitoes. Plaquenil can also be used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus. For the treatment of malaria, Plaquenil acts as a toxin to the parasites, inhibiting basic function and preventing growth. For the treatment of inflammatory symptoms, Plaquenil works by inhibiting inflammatory cells, preventing them from developing enough to become irritants. To make sure Plaquenil is safe for you, tell your doctor fi you have heart disease, heart rhythm disorder, diabetes, a stomach disorder, liver or kidney disease, psoriasis, alcoholism, or a genetic enzyme disorder. Talk to your doctor if you are pregnant, become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding, to discuss any possible risks. Tell your doctor about any medications you are currently taking in order to reduce the risk of interactions. Avoid taking antacids within 4 hours before or after you take Plaquenil, as it can reduce the effects of the medication. Taking Plaquenil long-term or in high doses can cause damage to the retina of your eye. Stop using Plaquenil and call your doctor immediately if you notice any vision changes. If you experience any serious side effects or signs of an allergic reaction, seek emergency medical attention.
