If you already have your prescription for anti malaria tablets, then you can simply send in your original prescription to us through the post after you have ordered your tablets (with the order confirmation attached). If there are no issues with your order/prescription, we will dispense and send your medication from our UK pharmacy. If you are ordering the generic malarone tablets then your prescription must state 'Atovaquone Proguanil', if it states 'Malarone', then you must either order Malarone, or have the prescription changed to the generic version. If you don't already have a prescription, then you can complete an Online Consultation, which will lead you through a series of questions, which are then reviewed by our independent pharmacist. If there are no issues with the answers you have provided, then you order will be dispensed and sent out to you via the shipping method you chose during the ordering process.
