I’m taking Plauquinal 200mg twice daily. Dr told me it could cause blindness.
I’m wondering if it could be reduced. Lots of side effects.

I started this over a month ago this same dosage and my eyes hurt so bad since. Wondering if its related.

One of the biggest things is that you have to go to an optometrist every year as plaquinel can eventually affect your sight. The dosage seems high, but it is known of the medication.

Two thoughts. The facts and medical knowledge are not on your side. I assume the dosage had little to no side effects for 28 years and was otherwise of some appreciable benefit? All the while treated by the same doc? It's a high normal dose without issues for 28 years. And, I assume you were referred by this same doc for annual retinal toxicity exams annually? It sucks that this happened no doubt. And I'm very sorry it did happen. I'm only commenting because you asked but no I dont see it. And if you did I am certainly not a lawyer or dr but I think you'd lose.
