Hydroxychloroquine is a quinoline medication that treats or prevents malaria. It is not effective against all malaria strains. It is also used to treat rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus symptoms. Hydroxychloroquine is not approved for use in patients under age 18.
Take for full prescribed length of time, even if malaria symptoms improve. Tell doctor if lupus or arthritis symptoms do not improve after 6 months. Take with meal or glass of milk. Adhere to dosing schedule as prescribed. If dosing is weekly, choose the same day of the week. Hydroxychloroquine is not 100% effective, so take other steps to prevent malaria, such as using insect repellents and mosquito netting.
May cause irreversible retina damage. Overdose can be fatal, so get emergency attention if you think you have taken too much hydroxychloroquine. Inform doctor of all known medical conditions and medications, as this drug may interact with a number of drugs and conditions, including other malaria medications, antivirals, antibiotics, antifungals, antidepressants, and birth control. Inform doctor if you are pregnant. Avoid taking antacid or Kaopectate within 4 hours before/after hydroxychloroquine.
Cease use and inform doctor immediately if you experience vision problems or eye irregularities. Get emergency attention immediately if you experience an allergic reaction. Call doctor at once if you experience serious effects such as: headache with chest pain and dizziness, pounding heartbeat, slow/weak pulse, muscle weakness, symptoms of low blood sugar or low blood cell count. Other common side effects include: ringing in ears, headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, weight loss, appetite loss, mood changes, hair loss, rash/itching.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
