Paludrine & Avloclor
The Paludrine/Avloclor anti-malarial travel pack has two different types of tablets that can protect you from catching mild forms of the malaria virus. Paludrine/Avloclor works by stopping the parasites multiplying and spreading in your blood stream, rendering it defenceless against your body’s immune system. This means that the parasite can’t reach the liver where it can cause an infection.
You can order this anti-malarial travel pack from HealthExpress.eu. All you need to do is complete a consultation so we can make sure that you can safely take Paludrine/Avloclor and that it will provide you with the most effective protection, depending on the malaria destination you are going to.
What are the benefits of this anti-malarial pack?
Paludrine/Avloclor can stop you from becoming infected with malaria in areas where the parasite hasn’t become chloroquine resistant, such as India. Paludrine/Avloclor prevents the parasite from multiplying and makes it defenceless against the body’s immune system. It’s also milder than other anti-malarial tablets, which means that it’s less likely to cause side effects.
How does this anti-malarial work?
Paludrine/Avloclor works in two different ways to protect you against infection. Avloclor (chloroquine phosphate) attacks the virus inside your blood, affecting the organism so that the haemoglobin in your red blood cells destroys it. The Paludrine (proguanil hydrochloride) stops the parasite from reproducing and spreading from one blood cell to another, making a full infection highly unlikely.
Who can take Paludrine/Avloclor?
These anti-malarial tablets can be taken by most people over the age of 18, however it’s not recommended if you have epilepsy, liver disease, kidney problems or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Paludrine/Avloclor may be affected by, or may influence the effectiveness of, certain types of medication, so make sure that you mention the names of any medication you’re taking or will be taking during your holiday when completing your online consultation.
How should you take these anti-malarial tablets?
You should start taking these medications seven days before you plan on arriving in your destination, continue taking them for the entire time you are away and for four weeks after your return. You only need to take two Avloclor tablets once a week during treatment. Two Paludrine tablets should be taken every day at the same time each day, preferably after food.
What are the side effects of Paludrine/Avloclor?
It’s unusual to develop side effects when using Paludrine/Avloclor, but people who are more sensitive to the active ingredients in these treatments may experience side effects. These are mostly mild and tend to pass as your body gets used to the ingredients. The most common side effects are mouth ulcers, headaches and stomach upsets. These can all be prevented by taking your anti-malarial tablets after you’ve eaten. If these persist, or if you experience anything more worrying while taking these anti-malarial tablets, you should speak to your doctor.
