    Long-Term Additive Cardiovascular Benefit of Plaquenil and Aspirin in Lupus By Jack Cush, MD 17 July 2017 Systemic lupus erythematosus SLE is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease CVD. Damage to the retina, the light sensitive portion of the inner eye, can occur with long-term use of Plaquenil or chloroquine Aralen. With Plaquenil, however, the most commonly prescribed anti-malarial, this sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more. Plaquenil is the brand name of hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to prevent or treat malaria. Plaquenil can cause serious side effects when used in high doses for chronic diseases such as RA over the long term.

    For example, it may be combined with an antibiotic to treat chronic Q-fever, which humans usually catch from farm animals or raw milk. Plaquenil is used to treat other types of infections too.

I can tell you that after long use of Plaquenil it can be seen in the corneal tissue but, this does not affect your vision and is only visible by the trained eye of a specialist. The ICD-10 section that covers long-term drug therapy is Z79, with many subsections and specific diagnosis codes. Because Plaquenil does not have its own specific category, clinicians should use Z79.899—Other Long Term Current Drug Therapy. But getting the right code is just one step in the process of correctly documenting the encounter. Along with its needed effects, hydroxychloroquine the active ingredient contained in Plaquenil may cause some unwanted effects. Although not all of these side effects may occur, if they do occur they may need medical attention.
