Without question, I believe several aspects of the new recommendations may be confusing. Mar 08, 2017 Based on the 2011 recommendations from the AAO and ACR, 17% of the patients were receiving an HCQ overdose that was more than 10% above the recommended dosage, and another 13% received a smaller overdose. If the 2016 dosage guidelines were applied, the extent of overdosing might be even greater, Dr. Koppikar said.
