Protect yourself from catching malaria

As well as taking Malarone, 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.

It is still possible to get malaria after taking the necessary precautions. Some types of malaria infection take a long time to cause symptoms, so the
illness may not start until several days, weeks or even months after returning from abroad.

See a doctor immediately if you get symptoms such as high temperature, headache, shivering and tiredness after returning home.

What is Malarone?

Malarone belongs to a group of medicines called antimalarials and it is used to prevent and treat malaria. It contains two active ingredients, atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. Malaria is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito, which passes the malaria parasite (Plasmodium falciparum) into the bloodstream. Malarone prevents malaria by killing this parasite. For people who are already infected with malaria, Malarone also kills these parasites.

How should I take Malarone?

  • You must read the manufacturer's patient information leaflet prior to taking the treatment.
