Hydroxychloroquine, in general is used for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and porphyria cutanea tarda.  Health care professionals must be keeping in mind the effects of these drugs on Cardiovascular system, especially on QT interval. Cardiac monitoring is strictly done to prevent adverse effects. These drugs should not be prescribed in cardiac patients.

Good updates, but my worry is the effect of both macrolides and chloroquine.on the QT intervals. Hope this are the patients once on treatment to be closed monitored using cardiac monitor.
