    Hydroxychloroquine dosing


    Chloroquine has been sporadically used in treating SARS-Co V-2 infection. Hydroxychloroquine shares the same mechanism of action as chloroquine, but its more tolerable safety profile makes it the preferred drug to treat malaria and autoimmune conditions.

    Hydroxychloroquine comes as a tablet to take by mouth. For prevention of malaria in adults, two tablets are usually taken once a week on exactly the same day of each week. The first dose is taken 1 to 2 weeks before traveling to an area where malaria is common, and then doses are continued for 8 weeks after exposure. Weight-based dosing Dose is based on body weight and must be determined by your doctor. At first, 13 milligram mg per kilogram kg of body weight taken as a single dose. Then, 6.5 mg per kg of body weight taken 6 hours, 24 hours, and 48 hours after the first dose. In a second recently reported study, researchers from the Chicago area documented that roughly half of the 554 rheumatology patients on hydroxychloroquine HCQ in a regional health system and seen by an ophthalmologist during 2009-2016 received an excessive dosage of the drug Ophthalmology.

    Currently, there is no evidence to support the use of hydroxychloroquine in SARS-Co V-2 infection. We propose that the immunomodulatory effect of hydroxychloroquine also may be useful in controlling the cytokine storm that occurs late-phase in critically ill SARS-Co V-2 infected patients.
