Info Leaflet

Before taking any medication, it is important to read the Patient Information Leaflet. You can find information leaflets for your medicines by typing them into the search bar at medicines.org, or by contacting us.

Directions

The dose for an adult is ONE tablet daily to be taken around the same time each day.

You should take Malarone tablets 1-2 days before you leave for your trip, throughout the duration of your trip and for 7 days after you leave the endemic area.

It is best to take the tablets with food or with a milky drink. This will increase the amount of Malarone that your body can absorb and will make your treatment more effective.

It is very important that you finish the full course of Malarone, as not doing so could leave you unprotected against Malaria. Always remember to take the tablets for 7 days after you leave the area as it takes 7 days to ensure any parasites in your blood have been killed.

If you forget to take a Malarone, don’t worry, just take the tablet as soon as you remember but do not take 2 tablets together. It is however important to try to not miss tablets as this could make your treatment less effective.

If you are sick while taking Malarone:

If you are sick within 1 hour of taking your Malarone tablet, take another straight away

If you have had to take extra tablets due to sickness, you may need another supply to ensure you finish the full course

If you have been continually vomiting then your Malarone may not be as effective and it is important that you take further precautions such as mosquito bed nets and insect repellent.
