FAQs About Malaria Medications

To provide more information about which antimalarial drug may be best for you, below are some common questions and answers about antimalarial medicine.

Which Malaria Medications Should I Take for Prevention of Malaria?

Antimalarial medicines are available by prescription. PlanetDrugsDirect.com has the following antimalarial pills which can be used for malaria prevention as well as treatment:

  • Pyrimethamine (Daraprim)
  • Mefloquine Hydrochloride (Lariam)
  • Atovaquone/Proguanil Hydrochloride (Malarone)

When preparing to travel to areas of the world where malaria is prevalent, taking antimalarial pills before you go can help prevent contracting malaria infection. The antimalarial medicine you should take depends on which country you are visiting.

What Are the Most Common Antimalarial Drugs?

You may be familiar with the common antiparasitic drug named Chloroquine; however, the drug is no longer effective in many parts of the world due to parasitic resistance.

Artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) are two or more antimalarials combined, making them effective drugs used to treat parasites. One common ACT, Artemether/Lumefantrine (Coartem), is available at PlanetDrugsDirect.com.

Another common antimalarial medication which PlanetDrugsDirect.com carries is Primaquine Phosphate (Primaquine).

  • Whether you are preventing or treating malaria
  • Which type of parasite you are infected with
  • The severity of your symptoms
  • Your age
  • Whether you are pregnant

Side effects for common malaria medications at PlanetDrugsDirect.com are:

  • Atovaquone/Proguanil (Malarone): side effects are uncommon, but this drug is not suitable for pregnant women or people with kidney problems
