Malarone is an anti-malarial tablet that can be taken to stop you from getting infected by the malaria parasite. It is particularly effective at stopping the most deadly strain, caused by the plasmodium falciparum parasite, which is also the most common. Malarone contains the active ingredients proguanil hydrochloride and atovaquone which prevent the virus from reaching your liver and causing an infection. You should start taking Malarone tablets two days before you arrive at your destination, and continue using it once a day during your trip and after your return.

What are the benefits of Malarone tablets?
You only need to take one Malarone tablet a day to benefit from effective protection against malaria. This medication has been proven to be effective at treating the most dangerous malaria parasite in areas where the parasite has become resistant to chloroquine, such as Africa and South America. Malarone doesn’t have to be taken for as long after your return as other anti-malarial medications.
How does it work?
Malarone contains two anti-malarial ingredients, namely proguanil hydrochloride and atovaquone. These active ingredients influence enzymes inside the parasite to stop it multiplying. This means that once the parasite is inside the body it can’t replicate and infect your body, allowing your immune system to take care of it more effectively.
Who can take it?
Most people over the age of 18 can take Malarone tablets. You should, however, not take this anti-malarial treatment if you are breastfeeding or have severe kidney disease. Make sure that during your online consultation you mention any other medical issues as well as medications you’ll be taking because they may make Malarone less effective than you need it to be.
How do you take Malarone?
It’s usually recommended that you start taking one tablet a day for two days before you arrive in a malaria zone. Continue doing this during your entire stay and for at least seven days after you get back. Malarone tablets shouldn’t be taken for too long, so let your doctor know if your holiday in a malaria zone is going to be more than 28 days. Taking this anti-malarial with a milky drink or food can aid absorption and will help you avoid side effects such as nausea or headaches.
What are the side effects?
Malarone tablets are well tolerated by most people. If however, you are slightly more sensitive to the active ingredients the side effects don’t last for long and are generally mild. The most common effects are headaches and nausea, which are both avoidable if you take Malarone tablets with milk or food. If the side effects persist or you experience anything more serious, speak to a doctor straight away. In the unlikely event that you experience any malaria symptoms, it’s best to visit a doctor straight away.
