Hydroxychloroquine

Antimalarial medication

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), sold under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used to prevent and treat malaria in areas where malaria remains sensitive to chloroquine. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda. It is taken by mouth. HCQ is being studied to prevent and treat coronavirus disease 2019 (COVIDโ€‘19). High-quality evidence of benefit for such use is lacking, with concerns of potential harms from side effects.
