    Introduction to Malarone Tablets

    Malarone tablets are renowned antimalarials, containing two potent ingredients, atovaquone and proguanil. These tablets act against the malaria-causing parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. Whether you are aiming to prevent malaria infection or treat an existing one, Malarone offers a trusted solution. Remember, a prescription is mandatory to purchase Malarone in the UK.  

    Understanding Malaria

    Malaria is a life-threatening disease, primarily spread by mosquito bites. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential, as a single mosquito bite can lead to infection. Malarone plays a crucial role in malaria prevention. Alongside medication, remember to:
    • Apply insect repellent on exposed skin.
    • Wear light-coloured clothing covering most body parts.
    • Sleep under insecticide-sprayed mosquito nets.
    • Ensure windows and doors are closed after sunset.
    Combining these preventive steps with Malarone dosing can drastically reduce your risk of contracting malaria. Always consult with your doctor before travel to high-risk areas. Learn more about Malarone side effects and dosing guidelines in the patient information leaflet.

    Price Comparison: Branded vs. Generic Malarone

    When purchasing Malarone tablets, you might notice price variations. This discrepancy arises from the initial R&D and patenting costs borne by original drug developers.

To explore our current deals, including the Malarone cost and availability, look at the top if this page.  

    Other Pharmacy Options

    While Malarone is available at other outlets like Asda, Tesco, or Boots, they usually require physical prescription submissions. My Pharmacy simplifies this process with an expert team ready to assist online. Plus, our competitive pricing can save you up to 50% compared to these retailers.  

    Malarone in India: What to Know

    Travelling to India? Be informed that Malarone isn't readily available there. Precaution is crucial, especially in the north-eastern regions like Meghalaya and Mizoram, where malaria risks are high. Prior to travelling, ensure you have the necessary antimalarial medication.  

    Staying Safe: Avoiding Counterfeit Medication

    Safety is paramount. Always be wary of fraudulent pharmacies promoting unlicensed or counterfeit Malarone, especially those claiming availability in India. Only purchase from licensed providers to ensure your health is not compromised. For more comprehensive details about malaria risks when travelling to specific regions, refer to the official NHS UK Travel and Malaria Risk Overview. Video Recommendation: To further understand when to take antimalarial medication, consider watching this educational video on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5dwEZaHrXg Remember, prevention is always better than cure. Equip yourself with the right information and medication to stay safe.  

    Why Malarone?

    Malarone stands out in the world of antimalarials. The combination of atovaquone and proguanil offers a unique mechanism to both treat and prevent malaria. The duo acts by inhibiting the reproduction of the malaria-causing parasite in the blood. Furthermore, the onset of action is quick, ensuring that you're protected soon after you start the regimen.  

    Dosage and Side Effects

    Malarone, with its active ingredients atovaquone and proguanil, is a leading choice in antimalarials. It's essential to take it correctly to get the best protection against malaria while ensuring minimal side effects. Dosage:
    • Adults: Typically, the recommended dose for adults is one Malarone tablet daily. Starting the course 1-2 days before travelling to an area where malaria is found is vital. Continue taking it daily during your stay and for at least seven days after leaving the area. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Do not double the dose.
    • Children: Malarone is available for children, with dosages based on their body weight. Always consult with a paediatrician or healthcare provider for the appropriate dosage for children.
    • Duration: You should continue taking Malarone for the entire prescribed duration. Do not stop early, even if you feel well, to ensure full protection.
    Top of Form Side Effects: While Malarone is generally well-tolerated, like all medications, it can cause side effects. Not everyone will experience them, but it's essential to be informed: Common Side Effects:
    • Headaches
    • Stomach pain or upset stomach
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Dizziness
    Uncommon Side Effects:
    • Insomnia or vivid dreams
    • Mild hair loss
    • Mild rash
    • Loss of appetite
    • Cough
    Rare Side Effects:
    • Anemia
    • Elevated liver enzymes
    • Severe skin reactions
    • Mouth ulcers
    • Visual disturbances
    For a more in-depth understanding of Malarone side effects, and how frequently they might occur, it's a good idea to check out the patient information leaflet. If you experience any side effects, especially those that feel severe or unusual, it's essential to consult with a healthcare provider immediately. Sometimes, adjusting the Malarone dosing can help mitigate some of the side effects, but this decision should always be made in consultation with a healthcare professional. Remember, the goal is to stay safe from malaria, but also to ensure that the prevention does not cause undue discomfort. Always prioritise your health and seek expert guidance when in doubt.
  • Malaria

    Malaria is a serious tropical disease spread by mosquitoes. If it isn’t diagnosed and treated promptly, it can be fatal.

    A single mosquito bite is all it takes for someone to become infected.

    Symptoms of malaria
    It’s important to be aware of the symptoms of malaria if you’re travelling to areas where there’s a high risk of the disease. Symptoms include:

    a high temperature (fever)
    sweats and chills
    headaches
    vomiting
    muscle pains
    diarrhoea
    Symptoms usually appear between 7 and 18 days after becoming infected, but in some cases the symptoms may not appear for up to a year, or occasionally even longer.

    When to seek medical attention
    Seek medical help immediately if you develop symptoms of malaria during or after a visit to an area where the disease is found.

    Malaria risk areas
    Malaria is found in more than 100 countries, mainly in tropical regions of the world, including:

    large areas of Africa and Asia
    Central and South America
    Haiti and the Dominican Republic
    parts of the Middle East
    some Pacific islands

     

    The Fit for Travel website has more information about the risk of malaria in specific countries.

    Preventing malaria
    Many cases of malaria can be avoided. An easy way to remember is the ABCD approach to prevention:

    awareness of risk – find out whether you’re at risk of getting malaria before travelling
    bite prevention – avoid mosquito bites by using insect repellent, covering your arms and legs, and using an insecticide-treated mosquito net
    check whether you need to take malaria prevention tablets – if you do, make sure you take the right antimalarial tablets at the right dose, and finish the course
    diagnosis – seek immediate medical advice if you develop malaria symptoms, as long as up to a year after you return from travelling
