Malarone is a popular anti-malarial tablet used to prevent malaria in patients travelling to high-risk malaria regions of the world. Typically these regions can be found in Africa, South America and Asia. Buy your Malarone online from Travelpharm.


What is Malarone, and what does this medicine do?

Malarone is a popular malaria prevention tablet that contains the active ingredients Atovaquone/Proguanil hydrochloride. Malarone should be taken daily when travelling in areas of the world where malaria is a problem. Malarone is probably the most effective antimalarial tablet and is generally suitable for sub-Saharan Africa, South America and South-East Asia. It is important to know that no antimalarial tablet is 100% effective and so insect repellents should be used to avoid bites from mosquitoes and other biting insects.


How many should I order for my trip?

Travelpharm have made this bit easy as we created our Malarone tablet calculator. Simply input the number of adults and children over 40kg, how many days you are at risk and the number of spare tablets you have (if any) and click calculate. Then let Travelpharm easy Malarone tablet calculator do the rest. Once you know how many malaria tablets you will need for your trip simply change the quantity on this page and click the button for an “Online Consultation” to start the process to order your Malarone online. As an example, a typical two week holiday (14 days) would require 23 Malarone tablets.

How do I take Malarone tablets?

Malarone has one of the easiest schedules of all the antimalarial drugs, so easy that it is usually our first recommendation for all trips due to the simplicity of it.

How often should tablets be taken?1 tablet each day when in the risk area.
When should I start treatment?2 days before entering the risk area.
How often when leaving risk area?7 days when leaving the risk area.

To get the most from your malaria medicine, take it with food at a similar time each day.
