Plaquenil Overview

Plaquenil is a quinoline medicine used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria. Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Mechanism of action


The precise mechanism by which Plaquenil exhibits activity against Plasmodium is not known. Plaquenil, like chloroquine, is a weak base and may exert its effect by concentrating in the acid vesicles of the parasite and by inhibiting polymerization of heme. It can also inhibit certain enzymes by its interaction with DNA.

Rheumatoid Arthritis and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

The mechanisms underlying the anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects of PLAQUENIL are unknown.

Dosage Forms and Administration

• One Plaquenil tablet contains 200 mg of Plaquenil sulfate, which is equivalent to 155 mg base.

• Take Plaquenil with a meal or a glass of milk.

Hydroxychloroquine and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Hydroxychloroquine is being investigated for and has been used in the management of COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2. Targeted for investigation based on evidence of in vitro activity against SARS-CoV-2 and on initial anecdotal reports and preliminary information from small trials. In addition, 4-aminoquinoline derivatives (chloroquine, Plaquenil) have immunomodulatory activity that theoretically could contribute to anti-inflammatory responses in patients with viral infections.

On March 28, 2020, FDA issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) that permits chloroquine and Plaquenil to be distributed from the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) to public health authorities to facilitate availability of the drugs during the COVID-19 pandemic for use only in hospitalized adults and adolescents weighing ≥50 kg for whom a clinical trial is not available or participation not feasible.
