Generic Malarone

Generic Malarone contains the same ingredients as Malarone and works in the same way. It is slightly cheaper than the branded medication.

Dosage: Start taking the tablets two days before travel and continue your treatment until seven days after your return. You need to take one tablet per day.

Side Effects: As with Malarone, atovaquone and proguanil tablets are recognised as having less side effects than other malaria drugs.

Each of the anti-malaria tablets has different side effects. See the detailed information on each tablet below to compare side effects.

The best preventative measure that you can take to avoid contracting malaria is to avoid being bitten in the first place.

Cover your skin by wearing long clothes, particularly in the evening and at night. Use an anti-malaria spray containing DEET to ward off mosquitoes and other insects. You should also consider using mosquito nets if you are sleeping in a malaria area.

There is no vaccine for malaria, so it is important to take steps to prevent contracting the infection.

If you would like personalised advice on malaria prevention, you can also book a £20 telephone consultation with one of our doctors.
