    Chloroquine CQ was introduced in 1953, followed by HCQ in 1955, but over the years HCQ has superseded the use of CQ because of its better ocular safety profile. The adverse effects of HCQ have also been well documented and include neuromyotoxicity, cardiotoxicity and ocular toxicity. Chloroquine and its congeners can cause two typical adverse effects in the eyes keratopathy and retinopathy. Both of these effects are associated with the administration of the drugs over long periods of time. Chloroquine-induced keratopathy is limited to the corneal epithelium, where high concentrations of the drug are usually used. Mar 15, 2019 Manifestation of these corneal deposits is not related to duration, dose, or vision loss and is completely reversible upon discontinuation of the medication. Chloroquine has been associated with keratopathy more than hydroxychloroquine. Older studies have shown a decrease in corneal sensation in approximately 50% of patients taking chloroquine.

    For all uses of chloroquine: WARNING/CAUTION: Even though it may be rare, some people may have very bad and sometimes deadly side effects when taking a drug. Do not start, stop, or change the dose of any drug without checking with your doctor.
