Chloroquine aka Plaquenil is also used for Lupus and Autoimmune diseases. According to Dr. Petri (world renowned lupus and APA expert), Plaquenil greatly reduces symptoms in Lupus and other autoimmune diseases. I know there is a risk of eye injury, albeit low.
Plaquenil is actually a metabolite of chloroquine called hydroxychloroquine.
I was actually trying to find out if Plaquenil also had the dopamine neuron protecting effects because the safety profile is much better. I suspect not though or I think they would have included it on the list.
Good call. I would think they would be biochemically similar once the hydroxy (hydrogen/oxygen) bond was removed.
