My doctor has already written me a prescription for Malarone

If you want to send the prescription to us in the post then please increase the quantity box to the amount shown on your prescription and click "I Have a Prescription". You will need to post the original prescription to us before we can ship your order. To speed things up you could use our online consultation option.

Please note that doctors often write prescriptions for the brand Malarone. Whilst Malarone and Atovaquone/Proguanil contain the same active ingredients, Malarone is a brand. Unfortunately, UK law prevents a pharmacy from substituting an unbranded product where a brand has been specified by the prescriber. So if your prescriptions state Malarone you will need to buy Malarone, get the prescription changed or simply fill out our online consultation and let our specialist write your prescription.
