What are the benefits?

Malarone tablets work by killing the parasite that causes malaria.

Malarone tablets contain 250mg of atovaquone and 100mg of proguanil hydrochloride.

Malarone is a branded medicine prescribed to protect against malaria.

 

How does this treatment work?

The active ingredients in Malarone tablets work by killing the parasite that causes malaria.

The parasite, called plasmodium, lives in the stomachs of infected female mosquitoes. It can be passed to humans who are bitten by infected mosquitoes, causing malaria.

How do you use it?

You should start taking Malarone tablets one or two days before you start travelling and then take them every day you’re staying in an area where malaria is present. Once you have left the area, you must take Malarone for a further seven days. Aim to take your tablet at the same time each day with food or a milky drink.

Please read the printed information leaflet inside the pack for full details of how to take this treatment.

Who can use it?

Malarone tablets are only suitable for adults and children weighing more than 40kg. Also, if any of the following apply to you, Malarone tablets may not be suitable for you, or you may have to take extra care while taking them:

  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • You have an allergy or sensitivity to atovaquone or proguanil hydrochloride
  • You have kidney problems
  • You have diarrhoea
  • You are vomiting

For more information on whether or not you should take this medicine, please refer to the printed information leaflet inside the pack.

Did you know?

The latest statistics show there were 207 million cases of malaria worldwide during 2012. Of those people, 627,000 died.

During the same year 1,200 people in the UK were diagnosed with malaria after returning home from abroad. Two of them died.

The good news is malaria is preventable. But if left untreated, it can be fatal.

Some parts of the world carry a risk of malaria, including many countries in Africa, Asia, Central and South America.

If you are going to a malaria country – or even just travelling through – it’s important to take antimalarial tablets a couple of weeks before you set off. You should also use insect repellent and keep your sun covered between sunset and sunrise to avoid getting bitten by a mosquito.

It’s also important to be aware of the symptoms of malaria when you arrive back home, since malaria may not make you feel ill for up to six months or a year after your holiday. Look out for any flu-like symptoms for up to 12 months after you return, especially if you’ve been to a country where you know there’s been an outbreak of malaria.

Other considerations

There are no known foods you should avoid while taking Malarone tablets. There are also no known interactions between Malarone tablets and alcohol.

However, taking Malarone tablets may affect your ability to drive or operate machinery safely.
