HOW TO USE
Usually, both adults and children should take one dose per week starting at least one week before traveling to the area when malaria transmission occurs. They should take a single dose a week while there and four consecutive days after leaving. According to health care experts, there are no limits on the use of hydroxychloroquine to prevent malaria. When the drug is used at higher doses for many years, a rare eye condition may occur called retinopathy; individuals who continue this drug therapy for more than five years should get regular eye exams.
For Lupus Erythematosus, the recommended dosage is 200 mg daily, administered as a single dose or in divided doses. The maintenance dose should exceed 400 mg otherwise, you may be at risk of developing retinopathy (disease of the retina).
When it comes to treating rheumatoid arthritis, the action of HCQS is cumulative and may require weeks to months to achieve the maximum effects. Talk to your doctor to get the appropriate dosing regimen that suits you and help you get rid of the condition.
