    In this way, it helps control inflammation that is often associated with lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. Hydroxychloroquine also blocks the activity of organisms such as P. falciparum, P. malariae, P. ovale, and P. vivax, which can cause malaria.

    Plaquenil is used to treat malaria caused by chloroquine sensitive strains of Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium malaria, Plasmodium ovale, and Plasmodium vivax. It is also used to treat autoimmune or inflammatory disorders, such as lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. It can help decrease inflammation and pain caused by these diseases. The appropriate dosage depends on the condition being treated.
