About Malarone

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 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 – your doctor will need an accurate weight to make sure your child gets the right dose. The same instructions apply, just with this different, lower dose tablet. You should take your tablet with food and liquids.
