    Use in pregnancy. There is no evidence that chloroquine is harmful in prophylactic doses during pregnancy. Because of the susceptibility of pregnant women to falciparum malaria, it should be used at the recommended dosage for both prophylaxis and treatment wherever chloroquine-sensitive malaria is prevalent.

Because insufficient drug is excreted in breast milk to protect the infant, nursing infants should be given chloroquine. Contraindications include people who are glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase G6PD deficient or hypersensitive to 4-aminoquinoline compounds. Mg chloroquine base/5 ml syrup.

The WHO recommends prescriptions and labels in chloroquine base. 100 mg base = approx. 130 mg sulfate = approx. 160 mg phosphate or diphosphate

    Plaquenil and Pepcid - Two days now I've taken the Pepcid, then an hour later took the Plaquenil and it's working great. I didn't even eat this morning and didn't have a problem. BTW I talked to two pharmacists and both said that it's okay to take with the plaquenil.
