    One of the most serious side effects is a toxicity in the eye generally with chronic use. People taking 400 mg of hydroxychloroquine or less per day generally have a negligible risk of macular toxicity, whereas the risk begins to go up when a person takes the medication over 5 years or has a cumulative dose of more than 1000 grams. VF testing in a patient with hydroxychloroquine toxicity demonstrates parafoveal depression, more prominent in the left than the right eye. These changes remained stable upon cessation of the medication. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ is an anti-malarial medication that has in recent times been utilized as treatment for a variety of autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus, and other inflammatory and dermatologic conditions. Retinal toxicity from HCQ, and its analog, chloroquine, has been recognized for many years.2,3 By some estimates, in the United.
