Malarone is a combined treatment that can protect you from being infected by malaria, including the deadly plasmodium falciparum malaria parasite. It contains two active ingredients, proguanil hydrochloride and atovaquone, which work by preventing the parasite from multiplying in the body and killing it before it reaches the liver. As a preventative treatment, Malarone should be taken once a day before, during and after your trip.

If you need a convenient preventative treatment to protect you against malaria when you travel, you can safely order Malarone from HealthExpress. If you take one of our online consultations, we can make sure that this is the most suitable treatment for you to take to prevent malaria in the region you are travelling to. Our doctor will check the consultation, and approve you to order the best malaria protection for your trip.

Dr Hilary Jones discusses malaria prevention treatments

What are the benefits of Malarone?

Malarone can provide protection against malaria parasites in just a single daily dose. It has also been proven to be effective at stopping even the most dangerous form of infection in areas where the parasite has become chloroquine resistant, which includes most of Africa and South America. When compared to other malaria tablets, Malarone doesn't have to be taken for as long and is less likely to cause side effects if used correctly.

How does it work?

Malarone contains proguanil hydrochloride and atovaquone, which work together to affect enzymes within the malaria parasite that helps it multiply within the body. This stops the parasite from spreading and causing the symptoms of the disease. This then allows your body's immune system to contain the virus and eventually kill it.

Who can take it?

Most people aged 18 and over can order Malarone online; it is however recommended that you do not take it if you are breastfeeding or if you have severe kidney disease. During your online consultation make sure that you tell the doctor if you are taking or planning on taking any prescription or non-prescription medications, as they may affect how Malarone works.

How do you take it?

It is usually recommended that you take one Malarone tablet once a day for two days before your trip and then continue with the treatment throughout your entire stay. You should continue taking Malarone for at least 7 days after you return, but prolonged treatment with Malarone is not recommended, so let your doctor know if your holiday is going to last for more than 28 days. It is recommended that you take Malarone with a milky drink or with food as this will aid the absorption of the medication and will reduce the risk of side effects such as headaches or nausea.

What are the side effects?

Although Malarone is mostly well tolerated, some people may be more sensitive to the active ingredients in this medication than others. Some of the most common side effects are headaches and nausea, however taking it with food or a milky drink will make it less likely that you'll experience these effects. If these side effects persist or you experience any particularly serious or bothersome side effects, speak to a doctor straight away. Contact your doctor immediately if you start noticing any malaria symptoms while on this medication.

Can you buy Malarone online?

You can order Malarone online from HealthExpress. We provide a completely free and confidential consultation before you order, so that our doctor can make sure that this medication is completely safe for you to use.
