    Is plaquenil a sulfonamide


    I thought it was a sulfa drug or at least in the same class. I would have thought that the "sulfate" in the name would be a give away?

    Answer - Posted in allergic reactions, hydroxychloroquine - Answer They aren't related in any way. It is frequently sold as a sulfate salt known as hydroxychloroquine sulfate. 200 mg of the sulfate salt is equal to 155 mg of the base. Brand names of hydroxychloroquine include Plaquenil, Hydroquin, Axemal in India, Dolquine, Quensyl, Quinoric. References Hydroxychloroquine 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. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.

    Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) belongs to a group of medicines called quinolines. The active components are bound to a sulphur compound as it slows down release times compared to hydrogen chloride which are usually found in faster release medications. what you are allergic to is sulfonamides like bactrim, right? Sulfate used after a drug name is just the last name of the chemical, its the sulfate salt.

    Back in April i started to take the Brand Plaquenil because I am allergic to Sulfa. I had read that it was better to take the Brand if you were allergic to Sulfa. And thank goodness, I have done well with it so far. I was started on a small dose, 1\2 tablet a day, but now the Rheumie wants me to take 400 mg a day. What are the possible side effects of hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, Plaquenil Sulfate, Quineprox? Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction hives ; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Plaquenil isn't a 'sulfa' drug which means a certain sort of antibiotic, the sulfonamides. Plenty of people who are allergic to those sulfa drugs take Plaquenil without any problem. This sounds all very odd to me!
