    Lupus Systemic Lupus Erythematosus or SLE Systemic lupus erythematosus is a condition characterized by chronic inflammation of body tissues caused by autoimmune disease. Lupus can cause disease of the skin, heart, lungs, kidneys, joints, and nervous system. When only the skin is involved, the condition is called discoid lupus. Initial dose 400 mg 310 mg base orally 1 to 2 times a day; this dose may be continued for several weeks or months, depending on patient response. Maintenance dose 200 to 400 mg 155 to 310 mg base orally daily. Comments -Each dose should be taken with a meal or a glass of milk. Hydroxychloroquine is used for its effect on systemic lupus erythematosus SLE disease activity and long-term benefits. This can be limited by adherence. One way to assess adherence is to measure blood levels. Conflicting data exist regarding blood levels.

  6. INTRODUCTION Hydroxychloroquine HCQ is an alkalinizing lysosomatropic drug that accumulates in lysosomes where it inhibits some important functions by increasing the pH. HCQ has proved to be effective in a number of autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus SLE.

    • Hydroxychloroquine in systemic lupus erythematosus SLE..
    • Hydroxychloroquine Blood Levels in SLE Clarifying dosing..
    • Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine sulfate dose, indications..

    Initial dose for the treatment of SLE, 400mg×2/day, is about the dose used in one of the studies above. Maintenance dose would keep the serum concentration constant. Assuming HCQ is effective, it would most definitely be protective in doses used in SLE patients. The antimalarial hydroxychloroquine appears to protect against organ damage in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, and the drug should be more widely prescribed in lupus, say US. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ, sold under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used for the prevention and treatment of certain types of malaria. Specifically it is used for chloroquine-sensitive malaria. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda. It is taken by mouth.
