Protect your children from catching malaria

As well as taking Malarone Paediatric, it is very important that you also take steps to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.

  • Wear light coloured, long-sleeved clothing that covers most of the body, especially after sunset as this is the time when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Use insect repellant on exposed skin and under thin clothing.
  • Insecticide sprays, mosquito coils and heating insecticide impregnate tablets all reduce the risk of bites.
  • If possible, sleep in a screened room or under a mosquito net impregnated with insecticide.

What is Malarone Paediatric?

Malaria is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito, which passes the malaria parasite (Plasmodium falciparum) into the bloodstream. Malarone Paediatric prevents malaria by killing this parasite.

  • To prevent malaria (for children weighing between 11 kg and 40 kg)

Although this medicine is usually used for children and teenagers, it can also be prescribed for adults weighing less than 40 kg.

How to take Malarone Paedriatic?

  • You must read the manufacturer's patient information leaflet prior to taking the treatment.
  • Give Malarone Paediatric with food or a milky drink, where possible. The tablets should be swallowed whole. However, for children who find them difficult to swallow, they may be crushed just before being taken and mixed
    with food or a milky drink. It is best to give Malarone Paediatric at the same time each day.


The usual dose to prevent malaria depends on your child’s weight.

Start giving Malarone Paediatric 2 days before travelling to an area which has malaria. Continue giving it every day during the stay. Continue giving it for another 7 days after your return to a malaria-free area. For maximum protection your child must take the full course of treatment.

If your child is sick (vomits)

For preventing malaria:

  • If your child is sick (vomits) within 1 hour of taking Malarone Paediatric, give another dose straight away
  • It is important to take the full course of Malarone Paediatric. If your child has to take extra tablets due to sickness, they may need another prescription.
  • If your child has been vomiting, it is especially important to use extra protection, such as repellents and bednets. Malarone Paediatric may not be as effective, as the amount absorbed will be reduced.
