    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.

    Nov 01, 2007 The FA appears normal, and the OCT is likewise normal. In addition to topiramate, several related medications generally containing sulfa may induce a similar syndrome of transient myopia, nonpupillary block-angle closure, and retinal folds. Again, the underlying mechanism is thought to be ciliary body swelling. Aug 29, 2014 Retinal toxicity of Plaquenil may manifest itself with subtle disturbances of the retinal pigment epithelium which may eventually lead to complete destruction of the macula in the form of bull’s-eye maculopathy.

    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.

    This occurs when melanin is able to bind to the “High Risk Medication” Plaquenil within the Retinal Pigment Epithelium RPE as well as direct toxicity to retinal ganglion cells. The drugs ability to bind to these pigmented cells creates a “Bulls Eye” around the macula, giving it this very unique appearance. The preferential loss of photoreceptor IS/OS junction makes SD-OCT an ideal tool to identify early changes associated with Plaquenil retinal toxicity. Due to the capabilities of SD-OCT to enhance the structural assessment of the retina, it has allowed for the detection of early damage prior to funduscopic clinical findings.

    Z01.00 vs. Z13.5 Medical Billing and Coding Forum - AAPC For years, when a patient who has RA or Lupus was seen for their annual eye exam, and they were also taking Plaquenil, the coding under ICD-9 was to code the disease code first and then the long term drug use code. It is the same for ICD-10.
