Uses
Malirid (Primaquine) is a type of antimalarial medication. It is used to treat a malaria infection, and may sometimes be given to patients who are infected with malaria to prevent the disease from returning. Doctors may also prescribe this medicine for use alongside other drugs, as treatment with multiple drugs is often required to treat a malarial infection. It is believed that this medicine works by disrupting the malaria parasite's supply of energy, and destroying it.

Dosage and Administration
Malirid (Primaquine) comes as tablets. The correct dosage will be prescribed by your doctor. Adults are sometimes directed to take 15mg per day, for a period of 14 days. However, it is possible that a dosage of 30mg per day, for 14 days will be prescribed. Patients who suffer from borderline G6PD (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase) deficiency may be directed by their doctor to take 45mg, once per week, with treatment lasting for 8 weeks. Doctors generally recommend taking each dose with food (to reduce the occurrence of a stomach upset) and a full glass of water.

Side effects
Patients being treated for malaria with Malirid (Primaquine) may sometimes notice side effects, such as:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Appetite loss
  • Upset stomach
  • Cramps affecting the abdomen

Tell your doctor if any side effects occur. Severe reactions may occur in a small number of patients. You must immediately see your doctor if you notice darkening of the urine, blurred vision, seizures, headaches or any other signs that you are suffering from serious side effects.

Precautions
It is possible that methaemoglobinaemia or haemolytic anaemia may occur as a result of taking this medicine. Ask your doctor for more information.

Blood tests may be required before starting treatment, to test for a certain compound known as G6PD (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase).

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 Malirid (Primaquine) 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.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
