    Monitor patients for cardiomyopathy during PLAQUENIL therapy. Chronic toxicity should be considered when conduction disorders bundle branch block/atrio-ventricular heart block or biventricular hypertrophy are diagnosed. If cardiotoxicity is suspected, prompt discontinuation of PLAQUENIL may prevent life-threatening complications. The study is based on hydroxychloroquine sulfate the active ingredients of Plaquenil and Plaquenil the brand name. Other drugs that have the same active ingredients e.g. generic drugs are not considered. Dosage of drugs is not considered in the study. However, hydroxychloroquine has an extremely favorable toxicity profile and is widely considered to be safe to use in the perioperative period as it is not a potent immunosuppressant. Leflunomide, sulfasalazine, and azathiaprine all have immunosuppressive properties and can be toxic at high levels.
