Regarding hydroxychloroquine levels and lupus activity, Costedoat- Chalumeau et al measured whole blood levels in 143 individuals taking a standard dose of 400 mg per day and found a lower hydroxychloroquine level in those with active disease and that lower baseline levels were predictive of disease flare. The mean AUC of methotrexate was increased 52% and the mean Cmax was reduced 17% when a single dose of methotrexate was given with a dose of hydroxychloroquine 200 mg oral. Close monitoring for evidence of methotrexate toxicity should be done in patients receiving this combination, especially in those with reduced renal function.
