What is Plaquenil?

Plaquenil contains hydroxychloroquine and is used to prevent and treat malaria infections caused by mosquito bites. Plaquenil can also be used to treat the symptoms of auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus when other medications cannot be used or have not worked.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication. Follow your doctor’s directions.

  • Hydroxychloroquine should be taken with milk or food in order to prevent stomach upset.
  • Your Plaquenil dosage and length of treatment is based on your medical condition, age, weight and response to therapy.
  • When treating Malaria, Plaquenil is typically taken once a week on the same day of the wee. It should be started two weeks before entering an area with Malaria and continued for 4-8 weeks after leaving the area. It may not prevent malaria in all cases.
  • When treating rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, Plaquenil is typically taken once or twice a day. Your doctor may change your dose after you have been taking the medication for a while.
  • If you also take antacids (such as magnesium/aluminum hydroxide) or kaolin for diarrhea, take this medication at least four hours before or after these products to make sure that it is fully absorbed by your body.
  • Plaquenil is most effective when it is taken regularly. When you are taking hydroxychloroquine for malaria, make sure to take it for the full length of time prescribed, even once you leave the affected area.
  • When treating rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, it may take several weeks or months to see improvement.


Make sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist:

  • If you have any drug or other allergies.
  • Which other prescription and non-prescription medications you currently take.
  • Your medical history especially of eye problems, porphyria, a stomach disorder, diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, skin problems or G-6 PD deficiency.
  • If you have alcoholism.
  • If you are pregnant, planning on pregnancy or breast feeding.

Also be aware that:

  • Plaquenil is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18.
  • This medication may cause QT prolongation. This risk may be increased if you take any other medications which cause QT prolongation or if you have certain medical conditions. Older adults may be more sensitive to this. Ask your doctor for more information.
  • This medication may make you dizzy. Do not drive, operate machinery or do anything else requiring alertness until it can be done safely.
  • Hydroxychloroquine may make you more sensitive to sunlight. You should limit your time in the sun and wear protective clothing and use sunscreen. Avoid tanning booths and sunlamps

Hello, as a retired USA pharmacist, I can say that Canada Pharmacy Depot has 2 awesome points in my book. Number 1 is the saving cost. If I use my Medicare D plan, I'm into the "coverage gap" in January. It amazes me how over priced the USA system is, sad I have to say that, but it is totally true. Point Number 2 is your customer service. I used to try to go out of my way for patients. I'm definitely glad seeing the staff at Canada Pharmacy Depot embodies that same desire....KUDOS... Paul
