Malarone tablets are a great choice for last minute travellers as you can start taking the treatment just 1-2 days before your trip. Malarone tablets are more expensive than other malaria tablets, but the key benefit of Malarone is that it is less likely to cause side effects, (compared to other treatments like Doxycycline).

To order malaria tablets, fill in our short assessment questionnaire and select your preferred treatment. Our online doctor will review your order and approve appropriate treatment.

What is Malarone?

Malarone consists of Atovaquone and Proguanil. Both are active ingredients, which prevent the spread of the malaria parasite. Proguanil targets the reproductive process by blocking an enzyme the parasite needs to multiply. Atovaquone also works by interfering with a particular stage in the parasite’s reproductive cycle, thus making it impossible for the infection to take hold. With this combination of ingredients, Malarone tablets provide an effective protection from the malarial plasmodium parasite.

How effective are the tablets?

Malarone tends to be highly effective against Plasmodium falciparum (the most serious type of Plasmodium ), but much less effective in the prevention of the less serious types. Depending on which malarial area you are travelling to, your doctor will advise you on the suitability of Malarone tablets and other antimalarials.

Who usually takes Malarone?

Malarone is normally chosen when travelling to a country with a particularly virulent variant of the illness. It is not suitable for everyone, pregnant and breastfeeding women must use an alternative treatment. As with most kinds of medicines, you need to make sure you inform your doctor of your medical history, to ensure you are prescribed the most suitable antimalarial possible.

What do I need to know before taking Malarone tablets?

Malarone has no known interactions with any food and drink, allowing you to stick to your preferred diet. If you are taking a contraceptive pill, you will find it useful that Malarone does not decrease its contraceptive protection, meaning you continue your contraception as usual. That being said, it is very important that you follow your doctor's advice carefully, taking your daily malarone tablet regularly and for as long as necessary.

Do I really need to finish my course, even if I am healthy?

Yes. Sometimes patients believe they can stop treatment immediately upon arriving home, provided they are well. This is not the case - you must continue taking your Malarone tablets for at least a week after leaving the malarial area you travelled to. Not doing so can lead to an outbreak of the illness, if you have been exposed to the parasite during your time abroad.

What are the advantages of taking Malarone?

Malarone is taken daily, which some patients prefer to weekly tablets. While Lariam and Doxycycline need to be taken for up to a month after returning from a risk area, treatment with Malarone only needs to be continued for a week.

What do the tablets look like?

Malarone tablets are round, bi-convex and pink.

How do I take Malarone?

You should take one tablet daily. Your course should start 2 days before you travel to an infected area. The treatment should continue for the duration of your stay in an infected area, and then continue for a further 7 days. If you miss a dose, don’t panic. Take it as soon as you remember or, if it is near your next dose, skip the forgotten dose and continue treatment as normal. If you vomit or have diarrhoea within an hour of taking Malarone, take a repeat dose. In the case of an overdose, seek medical assistance.

Paediatric Malarone tablets are available for children weighing 11 to 40 kg. The same instructions apply, just with this different tablet. You should take your tablet with food and liquids.

What is in a Malarone tablet?

Each Malarone tablet contains atovaquone 250mg and proguanil hydrochloride 100mg. Malarone tablets also contain Poloxamer 188 BP., microcrystalline cellulose Ph.Eur., low-substituted hydroxypropyl cellulose USNF., povidone K30 Ph.Eur., sodium starch glycollate BP., magnesium stearate Ph.Eur., methylhydroxypropyl cellulose Ph.Eur., titanium dioxide Ph.Eur., iron oxide red E172, macrogol 400 Ph.Eur. and polyethylene glycol 8000 USNF.
