    New plaquenil screening guidelines 2016


    "Look at everything—every time" is a mantra many of us have humming in the background as we go through our clinical day. Accordingly, providing screening examinations for high-risk medications, such as hydroxychloroquine, is a natural service for our profession.

    Because HCQ retinopathy cannot be reversed, proper screening is critical. The 2016 guidelines recommend the following. Screening intervals. All patients who are placed on long-term HCQ treatment should have a baseline screening within the first year of begin­ning treatment. The American Academy of Ophthalmology released an updated set of screening recommendations for hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil and chloroquine to account for the many studies that have shown the effects of these medications on the retina 1. It succinctly makes the case for screening, and Abstract. Background The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools.

    The retinopathy is hallmarked by parafoveal changes within the retina. Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue to the much older drug chloroquine. Hydroxychloroquine is most frequently used for the management of lupus and rheumatoid arthritis; however, it is now being applied to treatments in adjunctive cancer therapy, diabetes, and heart disease.

  3. Aug 30, 2011 Newer guidelines state that daily dose 5mg/kg of real weight/day can lead to toxicity. Retinal toxicity is irreversible and can progress after cessation of hydroxychloroquine, thus early screening is important to limit potential vision loss. Baseline screening and annual screening after five years is recommended.

    Based on this study the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommended new screening guidelines in 2011. The same study revealed that the most important predictor of toxicity was the duration of use cumulative dose and that age, the daily dose, and patient weight did not correlate significantly with HCQ toxicity. However, it was written in a small window of time between publication of the articles that have amplified knowledge of this disease and adoption of this knowledge into a new set of American Academy of Ophthalmology screening recommendations, which have just been published. 3 This 2016 revision modifies key points from the previous 2011. Thereafter, the AAO recommends to begin annual screening after 5 years for patients on acceptable doses and without major risk factors. Reference American Academy of Ophthalmology.

    Vitamins with plaquenil and pred. DailyStrength I have only recently started plaquenil and wanted to make sure i was taking it right in order to get the best results. It can lower absorption by up to 50%! You also have to be careful of antacids etc as they have magnesium as an ingredient. I try and take plaquenil separate to everything now just in case.
