Malarone

Malarone tablets belong to a group of medicines called antimalarials and contains two active ingredients, atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride.  There are many competitors but Malarone by GSK is the original. 

This antimalarial tablet is used to help prevent malaria in travellers going to regions of the world where malaria is present. Malaria is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito, so mosquito bite avoidance with insect repellents and also antimalarials like Malarone is really important!   

Protect yourself against malaria by taking Malarone daily to kill the parasite before it has the chance to cause any symptoms.

Buy Malarone Anti Malaria Tablets Online:

Every year hundreds of travellers from the UK catch malaria due to not taking the proper precautions. Therefore it is essential that you check whether you need to take malaria tablets for the country you plan to visit. You need to start taking Malarone tablets, ideally, 2 days before you enter the malaria area, every day you are in the risk area and for 7 days after you have left.

Symptoms of malaria are similar to flu, including fever, chills, backache, joint pain, headaches, vomiting & diarrhoea. These symptoms can start to develop a week up to a year after being bitten, so it is important to visit a doctor if you start to develop these symptoms, even when you are back home.  Whilst most cases of malaria present with a few weeks, some can take up to a year to develop!

Like all anti-malaria tablets, even though Malarone can protect and treat malaria, they are not 100% effective against the disease. It is also important to take other precautions to avoid being bitten by insects. 

Top tips include:

  • Using insect repellent on skin and clothes,
  • wearing light coloured clothing that covers most of the body,
  • sleeping under a mosquito net and keeping windows and doors closed.

Mosquitoes can bite at any time during the day however, they are most active during the evenings.
