My script was written for 1/2tab of 200mg
It is a good idea to advise the prescribing physician whenever one uses more or less than the prescribed amount of a medication.
However, in general terms, taking 400 mg of hydroxychloroquine is within a safe range for most people. In fact, for some people, this will be the dose they are prescribed.
