Maloff Protect should be taken daily, ideally at the same time each day, as follows:
- start taking Maloff Protect 1 to 2 days before arrival in an area with high prevalence of malaria
- take it each day (at the same time)
- continue to take it for 7 days after returning to a malaria-free area
If you can, take Maloff Protect with a milky drink or some food, as it helps your body absorb the active ingredients.
Follow these dosing instructions for Maloff Protect carefully, as not doing so can reduce its effectiveness and increase your chances of getting malaria.
What if I vomit?
If you vomit within 1 hour of taking a tablet, take another one straight away.
If you vomit more than 1 hour after taking it, you do not need to take another one until your next dose is due.
If you continue to vomit, seek medical attention as this could be a sign of a malaria infection, especially if you have other malaria symptoms.
What if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose, take another tablet as soon as possible and then continue your course as normal. Do not double dose to make up for a missed dose.
Why do I need to keep taking treatment once I’ve returned home?
It is important to continue taking Maloff Protect for 7 days after leaving an area where malaria is prevalent because this makes sure there’s still an effective level of the drug in your system. This ensures that any malaria parasites that are lingering in your system are eliminated by Maloff Protect and do not cause an infection.
