affect genetic material (mutagenic)
Special Remarks on other Toxic Effects on Humans:
Acute Potential Health Effects: Skin: May cause skin irritation. Eyes: May cause eye irritation. Inhalation: May cause
respiratory tract and mucous membrane irritation. Ingestion: May be harmful if swallowed. May cause nausea, vomiting,
anorexia, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, ulceration or bleeding from the duodenum. May affect respiration (respiratory
depression), peripheral nervous system, behavior/central nervous system/peripheral nervous system (somnolence, mild
and transient headache, psychosis, delirium, personality changes and depression, ataxia, tremor, seizures, coma, muscle
weakness, depression of tendon reflexes, spastic paralysis with or without sensory change), hearing (nerve type deafness,
tinnitus, reduced hearing in people with preexisting auditory damage), and rarely the blood (aplastic anemia, reversible
agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, and neutropenia), and cardiovascular system (hypotension, electrocardiographic change).
It may also cause retinal damage, blurring of vision and difficulty of focusing or accomodation and other visual disturbances,
pleomorphic skin eruptions, skin and mucosal pigmentary changes, photosensitivity, bleaching of hair pigment, lichen planus-
like erruptions. Chronic Potential Health Effects: Ingestion: Prolonged or repeated ingestion may cause weight loss, affect
behavior/central nervous system/peripheral nervous system (symptoms similar to acute ingestion), kidneys, liver (hepatic
necrosis, fatty liver degeneration), cardiovascular system. Long-term exposure may also cause irreversible retinal damage,
skin (symptoms similar to that of acute ingestion). Medical Conditions Aggravated By Exposure: Liver disease, hypersensitivity
to 4-aminoquinoline compounds, presence of retinal or visual changes, preexisting auditory damage, Epilepsy.
