Malarone Information

Malarone (atovaquone/proguanil) is used to prevent and treat malaria in areas such as Africa, South America, and South Asia, where malaria is common. Malaria parasites (Plasmodium falciparum) can enter the body through mosquito bites and live in body tissues such as the red blood cells or the liver. People of any age can get malaria. It is a serious but preventable disease. It is essential to take steps to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. Use insect repellent on exposed skin areas. Wear light-colored clothing covering most of the body, especially after sunset, as this is when mosquitoes are most active. Sleep in a screened room or under a mosquito net. Close windows and doors at sunset if they are not screened. Consider using an insecticide to clear a room of insects or to deter mosquitoes from entering the room. Some types of malaria infection may take a long time to cause symptoms, so the illness may not start until several days, weeks, or months after returning from abroad. See a doctor immediately if you get symptoms such as high temperature, headache, shivering, and tiredness after returning home. Antimalarial combinations like Malarone interfere with the growth of parasites in the red blood cells of the human body.
