Malaria is an antimalarial treatment used to treat moderate to severe cases of malaria. With effectiveness against the parasite that has formed a resistance to chloroquine, Malarone should be taken before your trip aboard and over the duration as a preventative treatment to significantly reduce the chance of you contracting the infection from the malaria parasite (plasmodium falciparum malaria parasite). Malarone can be taken to prevent infection through mosquito bites if you are visiting most of Africa, Americas and Asia, and will be recommended by your doctor after your consultation.
|Short facts about Malarone|
|How to use||
One tablet should be taken daily two days before your trip, across the duration away and then up to seven days after you have returned.
|How it works||
Malarone works by halting the growth of the malaria parasite in the system, allowing the body' immune system to combat the parasite.
Malarone has an effectiveness lasting for up to 12 months, however this must be first recommended by your doctor. The typical dosage is up to 4 weeks (1 month) of effective usage.
The dosage available to buy at OnlineClinic is 100mg/250mg (proguanil hydrochloride and atovaquone, respectively) and is available for up to 6 weeks of travel.
In the unlikely event that side effects of Malarone occur, they might be headaches, nausea/vomiting and itching.
Malarone contains two active ingredients that work to prevent the malaria parasite - proguanil hydrochloride and atovaquone in 100mg and 250mg dosages respectively – by targeting and stopping the malaria parasite from multiplying. It then cannot spread and your body's own natural defences (immune system) can completely kill the parasite.
A course of Malarone is taken for as long as or less than other malaria tablets, as they are stronger than other forms that don't have a resistance to chloroquine, however the daily process is the same for everybody:
Despite using Malarone up to nine days either side of your trip, it is not recommended to continuous take the medication for over 28 days.
Malarone is available in one dosage at OnlineClinic of 100mg proguanil hydrochloride and 250mg atovaquone. This can be purchased in 24 tablets, 36 tablets and 48 tablets depending on the length of your trip aboard.
