What is Malarone?
Malarone is an antimalarial treatment used to treat moderate to severe cases of malaria. With effectiveness against the parasite that has formed a resistance to chloroquine, Malarone should be taken before your trip abroad and over the duration as a preventative treatment to significantly reduce the chance of you contracting the infection from the malaria parasite (plasmodium falciparum malaria parasite). Malarone can be taken to prevent infection through mosquito bites if you are visiting most of Africa, Americas and Asia, and will be recommended by your doctor after your consultation.
Malarone is the original branded version of the combination medication, atovaquone, and proguanil. As GSK, the company who discovered and produced Malarone, have now lost exclusivity over manufacture, there are now less expensive versions of Malarone available. Sometimes known as 'generic malarone', these options contain exactly the same active ingredient as Malarone and is medically equivalent. These are still manufactured to the highest standards, yet generic Malarone is significantly cheaper than the original branded Malarone.

How to use Malarone?
A course of Malarone is taken for as long as or less than other malaria tablets, as they are stronger than other forms that don't have a resistance to chloroquine, however the daily process is the same for everybody:
- Eating around ingestion may make the tablets more effective
- Take one tablet once a day with water
- Start the course up to two days before your trip
- Continue the course seven days after you have returned
Despite using Malarone up to nine days either side of your trip, it is not recommended to continue taking the medication for over 28 days.
