    Answer When billing Plaquenil examinations, or any other high risk medication exams, it is appropriate to bill the systemic disease or any ocular manifestations as the primary diagnosis since many payers may not reimburse for the high-risk medication diagnosis as a stand-alone diagnosis. Testing services performed should have the high-risk medication diagnosis as the primary diagnosis since that is the reason for the testing. The diagnosis codes depend on whether the patient is now taking Plaquenil. If the patient has used the drug in the past but isnt now using it, code V67.51. You may need to conduct several checks after medication has discontinued to make sure latent toxicity doesnt appear. Side Effects Nausea, stomach cramps, loss of appetite, diarrhea, dizziness, or headache may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Remember.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.
