    Mar 15, 2019 Guidelines Summary. The American Academy of Ophthalmology released revised recommendations on screening for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine retinopathy in 2016. The latest screening guidelines were published in 2016 by the American Academy of Ophthalmology Table 1. The most important risk factors are dosage and duration of use. Dosage greater than 5.0mg/kg over five years dramatically increases the risk of retinal toxicity, and high doses can be exceedingly dangerous. AAO revised guidelines. The AAO published dosing and screening recommendations for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in 2016, revising previous recommendations published in 2011. The current maximum daily HCQ dose recommended by the AAO is 5 mg/kg of real weight. The 2011 guidelines suggested a maximum dose of 6.5 mg/kg of ideal weight.

    Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.
