    OBJECTIVE The use of hydroxychloroquine HCQ in pregnancy remains controversial. The recent demonstration that HCQ passes across the placenta, with cord blood concentrations nearly identical to those found in maternal blood, emphasizes the need for careful evaluation of pregnancies in women receiving HCQ. Pregnancy no. 1 ended in miscarriage at 7 weeks, pregnancy no.2 I developed HELLP at 29 weeks and had an emergency c-section. My son was in NICU for 7 weeks but is a healthy 3 year old today. And most recently, about a month ago I suffered another miscarriage at 10 weeks, after seeing a heartbeat at 8.5 weeks. Side Effects Nausea, stomach cramps, loss of appetite, diarrhea, dizziness, or headache may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Remember.

    Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.

Hydroxychloroquine Pregnancy Warnings Animal studies have revealed evidence of fetal harm. Use of chloroquine and other 4-aminoquinolines in high doses and for prolonged durations has been associated with neurological disturbances and interference with hearing, balance, and vision in the fetus.
