Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.

How does Malarone work?

It contains the active ingredients proguanil hydrochloride and atovaquone. These ingredients work together in specific enzymes that help with the multiplication of the malaria parasite in the body. If the malaria parasite can't spread, it can't cause an infection that can lead to serious symptoms.

If the treatment is used prophylactically, the treatment should be given enough time to build up to a sufficient level in your bloodstream, which is why it's normally recommended that you start taking it before you leave on your travels and that you keep on taking it while you are there.

Patients who can use Malarone

This medication is widely used, but it's generally not advised to take it if you have severe kidney disease or if you are breastfeeding. You should also ensure that you mention to your doctor any other existing medical conditions or medications that you may be taking, if they aren't aware of this already. This will ensure that the drug will only be prescribed if it's right for you.

Taking Malarone

The usual dose is a single tablet daily for two days before you travel. This dose should be continued for the entire duration of your stay and then seven days after your return. It's not recommended that you take Malarone for too long, which is why you should inform your doctor if your trip is going to be longer than a total of 28 days.

To aid absorption of the medication and reduce the risk of side effects such as nausea and headaches, this drug should be taken alongside a meal or with a milky drink.

Side effects

Malarone can cause side effects, but this doesn't mean that they will affect everyone who takes it. People who are sensitive to the active ingredients may experience headaches or nausea, both of which can be avoided by taking this treatment with food. Other more serious side effects are extremely rare, but you should seek medical help if you start to experience anything more worrying or bothersome.
