This dose should not exceed 6.5 mg/kg/day calculated from ideal body weight and not actual body weight and will be either 200 mg or 400 mg per day.

Dec 30, 2015 SAN FRANCISCO – Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil dosing based on actual body weight – instead of ideal weight – is appropriate for patients with systemic lupus erythematosus SLE, according to a review of 686 lupus patients at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

    The typical starting dose is 13 mg/kg maximum dose 800 mg. Additional doses of 6.5 mg/kg maximum dose 400 mg should be given at the following times 6 hours after the first dose, 24 hours. I usually start with a low dose of 100-200 mg per day to help the patient adapt to the medicine and allow an increase in dose later to as high as 300-400 mg per day. Less common adverse effects of Plaquenil are drug-induced skin rashes. These rashes may consist of many small red bumps or bright red skin covering most of the body. Hydroxychloroquine retinopathy is most influenced by daily dose and duration of use. Risk for toxicity is less with 5.0 mg/kg real weight/day for hydroxychloroquine and 2.3 mg/kg real weight/day for chloroquine. Patients are at low risk during the first 5 years of treatment.
