In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio. Can plaquenil be taken with neurontin Is hydroxychloroquine sulfate a steroid Pharmacy hydroxychloroquine This observation, which can be obtained only through optical coherence tomography angiography, may be relevant to the early findings of hydroxychloroquine toxicity.

Conclusions Once HCQ retinopathy is diagnosed and the medication is discontinued, structural retinal changes commonly occur. As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits.

In this study, we evaluated the retinal and choroidal microvascular architecture of the macula in a patient with hydroxychloroquine HCQ toxicity using OMAG.

Thirty eyes with HCQ retinopathy were followed with SD-OCT after drug cessation. Findings before disruption of the parafoveal EZ included parafoveal outer nuclear layer ONL thinning, disruption of the parafoveal interdigitation zone, and reduced reflectivity of the parafoveal EZ.
