Prevention and treatment of malaria Proguanil Hydrochloride and Atovaquone Malarone

Uses
Malarone (Proguanil Hydrochloride/Atovaquone) is a combination of two medicines which work together to prevent infection from malaria and to treat people who have already become infected with malaria. This disease is caused by the bite of an infected mosquito. These tablets work by attacking and killing the malaria parasites which live in the red blood cells.

Dosage and Administration
Malarone (Proguanil Hydrochloride/Atovaquone) comes as tablets, which you take orally in accordance with the instructions provided by your doctor. The dosage depends on whether it is taken to prevent malaria or to treat a malaria infection. Patients preventing malaria are normally told to start taking it 1 to 2 days before visiting an area where malaria infection is possible. It is necessary to continue taking it for the entire duration of the trip and for at least another 7 days after returning. However, patients who are treating malaria are normally directed to take it every day for 3 days. Remember to continue taking it for the entire length of time for which it has been prescribed.

Some patients who take Malarone (Proguanil Hydrochloride/Atovaquone) may experience side effects, such as:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Itchy sensation
  • Headache
  • A spinning sensation
  • Feeling weak

Remember to inform your doctor about any side effects that occur. There is also a slight risk of more serious side effects occurring as a result of using this medicine. Consult your doctor immediately if you notice fever, sores on the mouth, severe vomiting or any other side effects which have not been listed here.

Precautions
Before you start taking this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you have a history of kidney problems, liver disease, seizure disorders, mood issues or mental problems.

Remember that besides taking this medicine, you should also wear protective clothing and apply insect repellent when outdoors, as well as placing a mosquito net around your bed. This will help to further reduce the risk of malaria.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Malarone (Proguanil Hydrochloride/Atovaquone) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
