Buy Malarone in Australia
Malarone is a combination drug made up of Atovaquone (250mg) and Proguanil (100mg). Each part stops the P.falciparum parasite from reproducing in the blood. It is used to protect against getting malaria from mosquito bites that carry this parasite.
For simple malaria caused by the same parasite, the drug is given in stronger doses.
Who could get malaria?
Malaria is a tropical disease that is spread by mosquitoes in infected areas. It is common in places like Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. Before going to these places, you should find out how likely it is that you will get malaria in the place and time of year you are going. For more information, you can look at the NHS Fit for Travel website or talk to a travel medicine expert.
People who used to be immune to malaria because they lived in areas where it was common can lose that immunity over time. Tablets that are suggested for a certain area can change from time to time.
Children and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are more likely to get diseases like malaria, which can be very bad and even kill.
If you have flu-like symptoms like a high temperature, headache, body aches, shivering, and feeling tired for up to a year after leaving a malaria risk area, you should see a doctor right away. This could be a sign of a malaria infection.
Why did Malarone?
Malarone is one of several anti-malarial drugs that can be prescribed. It works best in high-risk areas where the P. falciparum parasite is resistant to chloroquine, which attacks the same parasite. Because it is easy to take, it is good for last-minute trips and trips that aren’t as long.
On the Fit for Travel website, you can find out which malaria pills are best for each destination, as well as other health tips for travelers.

Malarone: How to Take It
After talking with your doctor about the details of your trip, you need to start taking generic Malarone one to two days before going to a place where malaria is a risk. Take one tablet every day while you’re there and for the next seven days after you leave.
Take the pill once a day, at the same time, with food or a milky drink. For the medicine to work and to stop the body from getting used to it, the whole course of tablets must be taken.
If you forget to take a dose, just take the next dose as soon as you remember. Then keep doing what you were doing before.

How well does it work?
Malaria medicines don’t work 100% of the time, and people in high-risk areas should take precautions to avoid getting bitten. Cover any skin that isn’t covered, especially at dusk and after, and use bug spray and mosquito nets at night.
What are Malarone’s side effects?
Each person reacts differently to medicine, and some side effects are more common than others. Compared to other medicines that treat malaria, Malarone is very well tolerated. The manufacturer’s patient information leaflet (PDF) that comes with Malarone tablets has a full list of side effects.
Headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain are all common side effects that happen to more than 1 in 10 people. Most of the time, taking Malarone with food or a milky drink can help ease these side effects.
Less common side effects that can happen to up to 1 in 10 people include loss of appetite, coughing, dizziness, fever, rash or itching, insomnia, strange dreams, and anemia.
Some of the less common side effects include anxiety, heart palpitations, swelling and redness of the mouth, hair loss, and hives. These can happen to up to 1 in 100 people. In the patient information leaflet, there is a list of other rare side effects.
What should I do if Malarone makes me sick in any way?
Try to keep taking the medicine.
Take it as directed, every day, with food or a milky drink.
Stick to simple, plain foods.
You can treat annoying side effects with medicines that people already take. For example, paracetamol can be used to treat a headache. If you feel sick and want to throw up, try a medicine like promethazine.
Don’t stop taking your medicine to prevent malaria if you can help it.
If you get sick (vomit) within an hour of taking your Malarone pill, take another one right away.
Do not drive or use machinery if you feel dizzy.
If you think Malarone has caused a serious side effect, you should tell your doctor.
The Yellow Card Scheme should be used to report bad reactions.
After taking Malarone, there were allergic reactions
If you have any symptoms or signs of anaphylaxis, which is a severe allergic reaction, you need to go to the hospital right away.
Some of the signs and symptoms of an acute allergic reaction are:
Breathing hard, chest tight, and wheezing.
Face, eyelids, lips, tongue, or other parts of the body that swell up.
Urticaria or hives is a skin rash. Usually, antihistamines are used to treat it.
Confusion, collapse, unconsciousness.

Who is not supposed to take Malarone?
