Chloroquine - Overview
Chloroquine is a medication traditionally indicated for use in the prophylaxis and treatment of malaria when chloroquine resistance is not a concern. People who might need a chloroquine phosphate tablet prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider licensed in the United States who can prescribe chloroquine medication when appropriate to do so. If you are considering using Push Health for your health needs, it is very important that you answer questions as accurately as possible to avoid delays in your care.
What Is Chloroquine?
Chloroquine is indicated for treating uncomplicated malaria caused by P. falciparum, P.malariae, P. ovale, and P.vivax strains that are thought to be susceptible to chloroquine medication. Chloroquine is also used in preventing malaria in regions where chloroquine resistance is not thought to be an issue. Chloroquine, like hydroxychloroquine, which is more often used in treating inflammatory conditions, belongs to a class of drugs known as 4-aminoquinoline compounds. Chloroquine has been demonstrated to have activity against protozoal agents although the exact mechanism of action is not clear. Chloroquine may work by blocking certain enzymes or impairing the synthesis of biological molecules known as heme. Chloroquine, like ivermectin and zinc sulfate, is also under investigation as a potential treatment for COVID-19. There are some early reports that chloroquine might have some activity against the new coronavirus as a coronavirus treatment but there is no official indication for that use at this time, even in people who have a positive coronavirus test.
Chloroquine - Dosage and Price
In adults, chloroquine is often prescribed as chloroquine 500 mg once weekly (equivalent to a chloroquine 300 mg base) although the exact regimen prescribed depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider and the health needs of the patient. Following oral administration, almost all of the chloroquine is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and the majority of the drug is found bound to proteins in the plasma. In the body, chloroquine is deposited into tissues and some excretion occurs via the urine. Chloroquine is moderately expensive, costing approximately $4 per chloroquine 500 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Additionally, some insurance plans may cover costs associated with a chloroquine phosphate prescription. People paying out of pocket should search for chloroquine coupons online to help reduce the costs associated with the medication.
Can I Buy Chloroquine Online?
One cannot just buy chloroquine online as chloroquine is a prescription medication in the United States. In other words, one must consult a licensed medical provider to obtain a chloroquine phosphate tablet prescription before it can be dispensed by a pharmacy. Because of these regulations, chloroquine OTC is not available, either. People who may need a chloroquine medication prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe chloroquine phosphate medication when appropriate to do so.
Chloroquine - Side Effects
Chloroquine can cause side effects, including psoriasis exacerbation, muscle weakness, hearing problems, neurological symptoms, and liver issues. Chloroquine can interact with other medications and should be used judiciously in the setting of other drugs. People who have visual problems or sensitivity to 4-aminoquinoline compounds should not use chloroquine. People with a known hypersensitivity to chloroquine or ingredients in the medication should not use chloroquine. Chloroquine and alcohol should not be used together.
