    The usefulness of hypokalemia as an indicator in the evaluation of chloroquine toxicity was studied in a retrospective series of 191 acute chloroquine poisonings. Results indicated that the risk of severe poisoning and death are proportional to the degree of hypokalemia. SummaryLarge doses of chloroquine can cause poisoning. Our aim was to determine the possible relation between the plasma potassium concentration on admission with the severity of acute chloroquine poisoning and to assess the mechanism of chloroquine-induced conducted a retrospective study of 191 consecutive cases. The main data included the occurrence of vomiting before. In addition, chloroquine is prescribed as therapy for certain connective tissue disorders. Consequently, there are many opportunities for children to be poisoned through chloroquine ingestion. To alert medical practitioners and the public to this danger, the following cases of chloroquine poisoning recently reported to CDC are presented.

    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.

  5. Acute chloroquine intoxication is responsible for a hypokalaemia which correlates with the gravity of the intoxication and may be due to a transport-dependent mechanism. Plasma potassium concentrations should be carefully observed, particularly among patients who also receive catecholamine infusions.

    Abstract. Background The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools. Chloroquine and related quinines have been associated with cases of retinal toxicity, particularly when provided at higher doses for longer times. Accumulation of the drug may result in deposits that can lead to blurred vision and blindness. Of chloroquine is excreted unchanged; Resuscitation Coma Prompt intubation and ventilation, if acidaemia exists, give sodium bicarbonate 1 – 2 mmol/Kg IV to prevent further toxicity during intubation. End goals should be a narrow QRS 100ms and a pH 7.45

    Prednisone and plaquenil - This is normal for Lupus patients. My good friend has Lupus and she was put on both Predinisone and Plaquenil when she first was out of remission. She is now on many different serious types of meds including Prednisone and no longer Plaquenil because this was replaced by more serious meds. She has been in/out of the hospital for a year now. Good Luck.
