    Plaquenil testing review of optometry


    Patients starting chloroquine (CQ) or hydroxychloroquine (HCQ; i.e. Plaquenil) should have a baseline examination that serves as a reference point, as well as to rule out any preexisting maculopathies.

    Aug 30, 2011 She suffered from Sjogren syndrome and inflammatory arthritis and was currently treated with prednisone and methotrexate. She was previously treated with hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil 200mg bid 6.5mg/kg for 10 years, which was stopped one year prior to presentation. A risk factor for Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine retinotoxicity is a daily dose that exceeds 5.0 mg of drug per kg of body weight. The tool on the right simply calculates this threshold based on a ppatient’s real body weight. It’s important to understand that the daily dose is only one risk factor for plaquenil retinotoxicity. Plaquenil is known to show retinal toxicity which can effect the vision and it is imperative to be able to spot any changes and to contact the patient's rheumatologist to notify them about the changes. The presentation goes over how to spot and what testing to perform to make sure there is no retinal toxicity.

    The American Academy of Ophthalmology released an updated set of screening recommendations for hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) and chloroquine to account for the many studies that have shown the effects of these medications on the retina (1). While most rheumatologists are now routinely prescribing their patients 400 mg of HCQ (or 250 mg CQ) daily for the management of conditions like systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis, individuals of short stature often have their dosage determined off of their ideal body weight to avoid overdosing.

    Optometry has a long history of providing complete eye care. "Look at everything—every time" is a mantra many of us have humming in the background as we go through our clinical day. Accordingly, providing screening examinations for high-risk medications, such as hydroxychloroquine, is a natural service for our profession. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy could result in severe and irreversible vision loss without prompt intervention. With so much at stake, optometrists cannot afford to underestimate the importance of screening and early detection. In 2002, the American Academy of Ophthalmology AAO established ocular examination guidelines for screening patients on Plaquenil therapy. Testing included a comprehensive eye exam that consisted of an assessment of the posterior segment with careful evaluation of associated macular changes or signs of retinal disease. 4 Baseline fundus photography was considered as an optional test.
