Hydroxychloroquine should be taken as prescribed by the doctor. It is given orally, after food, usually once or twice daily.
A typical adult dose ranges from 200 milligrams to 400 milligrams daily. Your doctor may reduce the dose if you have kidney problem.
You may start to see improvement within a few weeks, but it may take up to several months to experience its full benefit.
If you forget to take the tablet, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the forgotten dose. Resume the next dose at the regular timing. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten tablet.
