Doxycycline for Malaria Prevention

Doxycycline 100 mg is mainly used to prevent malaria in travelers visiting malaria-prone areas. It works by stopping the malaria parasite from growing in your blood cells, preventing malaria.

How it works 

You get infected with malaria through a mosquito bite. The mosquito releases the malaria parasite into your bloodstream.

Doxycycline has an active ingredient known as doxycycline hyclate.The active ingredient works by preventing the growth of the parasite by killing it.

How effective is Doxycycline for malaria?

Doxycycline is highly effective at preventing malaria, similar to Lariam, although no antimalarial is 100% effective. Besides taking malaria tablets, reducing the risk of malaria also involves avoiding mosquito bites.

Alternative treatments 

There are other treatments that you can use in place of doxycycline. Different anti-malaria treatments are recommended for various parts of the world.

✅ Atovaquone with Proguanil

Atovaquone with Proguanil, is a dual-action antimalarial treatment used to treat and prevent malaria. Atovaquone works by interfering with the mitochondria of the malaria parasite while proguanil stops the parasite from reproducing its DNA.

✅ Malarone - Anti-Malaria Tablets
