Brand name: Hqkast

Generic name: Hydroxychloroquine Sulphate

Strength: 200 mg

Manufacturer: Aprazer Healthcare

Dosage form: Tablets

Indication: Rheumatoid Arthritis

Storage: Store at room temperature.

Overview

Hqkast is a prescription drug used in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. This medication is also used to treat the symptoms of discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. It is broadly used for the prevention of malaria. Hqkast comprises Hydroxychloroquine Sulphate, a small molecule compound. It is available in the strength of 200 mg in the form of tablets for oral use only. The regimen works by affecting the function of lysosomes. 

Pharmacodynamics

In humans, hydroxychloroquine alters the function of lysosomes and plasmodia. In autoimmune disorders, changing the pH of the lysosomes lowers low-affinity self-antigen presentation and interferes with plasmodia's capacity to proteolyze hemoglobin for energy. For some indications, hydroxychloroquine has a longer duration of action and can be used once a week. The formulation may cause severe hypoglycemia and thus patients with diabetes are advised to regularly monitor their blood glucose levels.
