In brief: Absolutely

Anxiety over potential eye problems with Hydroxychloroquine is completely unwarranted if the dose is kept below 6mg/kg (2.
2lbs) of body weight. Apart from some stomach quiziies, I have never stopped this drug, as long as it demonstrated it is working. Shown effective in ra, sle, and other ctd's.
