How and where to order Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) 200 mg tablets or capsules online:
PLAQUENIL (HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE SULFATE) TABLETS: DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
One Plaquenil tablet contains 200 mg of hydroxychloroquine sulfate, which is equivalent to 155 mg base.
Take Plaquenil with a meal or a glass of milk.
400 mg (310 mg base) once weekly on the same day of each week starting 2 weeks prior to exposure, and continued for 4 weeks after leaving the endemic area.
Weight-based dosing in adults and pediatric patients: 6.5 mg/kg (5 mg/kg base), not to exceed 400 mg (310 mg base), once weekly on the same day of the week starting 2 weeks prior to exposure, and continued for 4 weeks after leaving the endemic area.
Treatment of Uncomplicated Malaria Adults
800 mg (620 mg base) followed by 400 mg (310 mg base) at 6 hours, 24 hours and 48 hours after the initial dose (total 2000 mg hydroxychloroquine sulfate or 1550 mg base).
Weight based dosage in adults and pediatric patients
13 mg/kg (10 mg/kg base), not to exceed 800 mg (620 mg base) followed by 6.5 mg/kg (5 mg/kg base), not to exceed 400 mg (310 mg base), at 6 hours, 24 hours and 48 hours after the initial dose. Plaquenil (Hydroxychloroquine) film-coated tablets cannot be divided, therefore they should not be used to treat patients who weigh less than 31 kg.
For radical cure of P. vivax and P. malariae infections, concomitant therapy with an 8aminoquinoline compound is necessary.
The recommended adult dosage is 200 to 400 mg (155 to 310 mg base) daily, administered as a single daily dose or in two divided doses. Doses above 400 mg a day are not recommended.
The incidence of retinopathy has been reported to be higher when this maintenance dose is exceeded.
The action of hydroxychloroquine is cumulative and may require weeks to months to achieve the maximum therapeutic effect.
Initial adult dosage
400 mg to 600 mg (310 to 465 mg base) daily, administered as a single daily dose or in two divided doses. In a small percentage of patients, side effects may require temporary reduction of the initial dosage.
Maintenance adult dosage
When a good response is obtained, the dosage may be reduced by 50 percent and continued at a maintenance level of 200 mg to 400 mg (155 to 310 mg base) daily, administered as a single daily dose or in two divided doses.
Do not exceed 600 mg or 6.5 mg/kg (5 mg/kg base) per day, whichever is lower, as the incidence of retinopathy has been reported to be higher when this maintenance dose is exceeded.
Corticosteroids and salicylates may be used in conjunction with Plaquenil, and they can generally be decreased gradually in dosage or eliminated after a maintenance dose of Plaquenil tablets has been achieved.
