Overview

NOTE: After selecting this product, you will need to complete a short assessment, so we can make sure this medication is suitable for you.

Malarone is an antimalarial medication used to prevent malaria in areas where there is resistance to other antimalarial drugs such as chloroquine. Malarone contains two active ingredients: atovaquone and proguanil. These work in conjunction to kill the parasite infection before it can cause malaria. Malarone treatment should be started before entering the endemic area and continued during your trip.

Directions

Dosage

Take one tablet daily with food at the same time each day. Start taking the tablet 1 to 2 days before you enter the malaria area, continue taking it for the duration of your trip and for 1 week after you leave.

FAQ

  • Which is better: Malarone or Doxycycline?

    Malarone only needs to be taken for 1 week after leaving the malaria area and has fewer side effects than doxycycline. Doxycycline needs to be taken for 4 weeks after leaving the malaria area, however it is cheaper than malarone. Doxycycline decreases the efficacy of the contraceptive pill, so this is not recommended for women on the contraceptive pill. The choice of antimalarial treatment depends on your preferences.
