The Paludrine & Avloclor Anti-Malarial Travel Pack contains 2 different types of malaria tablets which can protect you from mild forms of the disease while you travel abroad. They work in various ways, by preventing the parasite from spreading in your bloodstream, preventing it from infecting your organs such as your liver; and by destroying the parasite's defences so your body can kill them.
Paludrine & Avloclor are available from HealthExpress. To buy the pack online, you will need to complete a short and confidential consultation, so that we can make sure that these tablets are the right choice for you and will keep you protected throughout your time abroad.
Paludrine & Avloclor can provide effective protection against malaria parasites that aren't resistant to chloroquine. It's most suitable in lower risk areas, such as India, where the most dangerous parasites are not present. Because these are milder medicines, it's also less likely to cause fewer side effects.
Paludrine & Avloclor is a dual action treatment that stops the parasites from spreading while attacking their defences so that they can be killed, preventing a full malaria attack from occurring.
Avloclor (chloroquine phosphate) works by attacking the malaria parasite inside the red blood cells. It affects the parasite's defence mechanism so that eventually the haemoglobin in the cell destroys it. Paludrine (proguanil hydrochloride) prevents the parasite from spreading from one red blood cell to another; a full malaria attack can only happen once enough blood cells have been infected.
Most people over the age of 18 can use the medications in this travel pack. Make sure to mention in your online consultation if you have epilepsy, liver or kidney problems or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding as you may not be able to use these treatments. Paludrine & Avloclor may affect certain types of medications, so mention any medications you are, or you intend on taking, in your consultation.
You should start taking these medicines one week (seven days) before you intend on travelling and continue taking them up until the fourth week of your return. During this period you should take two Avloclor tablets once a week, on the same day each week. You should take two Paludrine tablets daily, at the same time each day after food.
Although it is unlikely that you'll experience side effects, but they can occur in people who are more sensitive to the active ingredients contained in these two medications. The most common side effects are headaches, mouth ulcers and stomach upsets. These can mostly be prevented by taking the medication after food and usually tend to pass as soon as your body has become used to the medication. However if they persist, or if you experience anything more bothersome, it's best to speak to a doctor straight away.
Paludrine & Avloclor is available to order safely and securely from HealthExpress. To help make sure that this is the right malaria tablet pack for the destination you are intending to visit, we ask you to complete a quick online consultation form. If these travel medications are the most suitable option for you, you will be able to place your order and it will be shipped from our UK registered pharmacy with free next-day delivery.
