    Also called Plaquenil, hydroxychloroquine is a disease-modifying drug that can help decrease both the swelling and pain of rheumatoid arthritis. According to Rheumatology.org, there is not a clear reason why hydroxychloroquine is so effective in treating autoimmune diseases. It is potentially because the drug interferes with the immune system’s cells’ communications. Plaquenil reduces inflammation in many Rheumatic disorders, the mode of action is pretty complicated though so I shan't bore you with all the details, but basically it prevents your dendritic cells these are messengers for your immune system, if you will from interacting with your T-Cells a special type of white blood cell which through a convoluted and boring process, causes inflammation. Plaquenil was actually first classified as an antimalarial drug, but it is also used to treat certain rheumatic and autoimmune conditions which are unrelated to malaria. Generally, Plaquenil is a treatment option as monotherapy used alone for mild rheumatoid arthritis or as combination therapy with other DMARDs for moderate to severe disease.

    Today, it is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, some symptoms of lupus, childhood arthritis (or juvenile idiopathic arthritis) and other autoimmune diseases. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria.

    Hydroxychloroquine and Eyes Hi all, I am new to this. Hi I started on hydroxychloroquine just 6 weeks ago and my rheumatologist warned me about poss damage to eyes and I should have an eye test to get a base line for them to work from and then have a test every 12 months to monitor. I had my eye test last week and all good which is great considering I've not had my eyes tested for about 20years.

    What can Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil do to my eyes?

    Does this explain generic plaquenil shortage? We all like to pick on the big drug companies that produce new drugs at astronomical costs but generic makers aren't much better or more ethical. Many of our drugs are made overseas today due to cost but just like the offshoring done for other products and services it rarely meets the standards of products made in the advanced world.
