Hydroxychloroquine is a prescription drug that’s been around since the 1940s. Doctors first used it to treat malaria. Today you’re more likely to take it if you have rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. You may have heard it can treat COVID-19. The benefits for treating certain conditions outweigh the risks. You should only take it if your trusted doctor says it’s OK. Hydroxychloroquine, sold under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used to prevent and treat malaria in areas where malaria remains sensitive to chloroquine. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda.
