    In the U. S. a medication’s expiration date is like the pharmaceutical company’s guarantee they stand by the product until that day; after that, all bets are off. The med has been tested and proven to hold up that long—if the container is unopened and stored correctly. Chloroquine is rapidly and almost completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, and only a small proportion of the administered dose is found in the stools. Approximately 55% of the drug in the plasma is bound to nondiffusible plasma constituents. Excretion of chloroquine is quite slow, but is increased by acidification of the urine. Standard generics typically don’t become available until the brand patent has expired and another manufacturer creates an alternative. Though it sounds similar, an “authorized generic” is a different type of alternative that isn’t dependent on patent expiration dates.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend against treatment of malaria with chloroquine alone due to more effective combinations. In areas where resistance is present, other antimalarials, such as mefloquine or atovaquone, may be used instead.

Individuals beginning HCQ therapy should be informed of the possibility, although extremely rare, of retinal toxicity, and told that periodic monitoring can lead to early recognition of some symptoms.
