    I've read in the most recent Lupus UK magazine that a new 300mg Hydroxychloroquine tablet has been launched in the UK by Blackrock Pharmaceuticals ltd. This is following the weight-based dosing requirements guidelines published in January 2020.

    The article suggests that if you're now prescribed the equivalent of 300mg a day - some patients have a complex dosing strategy - this new tablet could be more helpful so to discuss this with your doctor or specialist nurse.

    Interesting. I am sure there are a fair amount of patients falling in-between the weight categories. Thanks for the info Jess.
