Thanks for writing to us.
HCQS200 is Hydroxychloroquine which is used for treatment of many diseases including Lichen planus. The dose prescribed to you is right. Please take the drug as prescribed to you by your physician.
Hope this answers your question.
Let me know if you have any more queries.
Take care.
