    Medically reviewed by Last updated on Jan 21, 2019. One PLAQUENIL tablet contains 200 mg of hydroxychloroquine sulfate, which is equivalent to 155 mg base. Take PLAQUENIL with a meal or a glass of milk. Adults 400 mg 310 mg base once weekly on the same day of each week starting 2 weeks prior to exposure, and continued for 4 weeks. With Plaquenil, however, the most commonly prescribed anti-malarial, this sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more. For this reason though, it is important that you see an ophthalmologist for an exam before starting to take an anti-malarial medication for your lupus. I normally post on the arthritis board, and due to toxicity of the Plaquenil after 2 years, I have had to discontinue it, since I failed the visual field testing. Although I take Enbrel, and MTX, neither one work as well as the Plaquenil and the fatigue and joint pain have returned full force.
