    Apr 10, 2019 Plaquenil can cause serious liver or heart problems, especially if you use certain medicines at the same time, including other medicines to treat malaria; an antibiotic or antifungal medicine; Many systemic medications may cause retinal toxicity. One such commonly used medication for dermatologic and rheumatologic inflammatory conditions is hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, a chloroquine derivative. It is used to treat many diseases including malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Hydroxychloroquine is metabolized and secreted by both the liver and the kidneys. Therefore, disturbed renal or hepatic function might reduce HCQ clearance and increase the propensity for toxicity. Older age may also be associated with increased risk of macular toxicity, possibly due to the pre-existence of age-related macular changes that might not allow for the identification of early signs of toxicity.

    The most serious adverse effects affect the eye, with dose-related retinopathy as a concern even after hydroxychloroquine use is discontinued. The most common adverse effects are a mild nausea and occasional stomach cramps with mild diarrhea.
