Antimalarial Medications for Travelers

The NHS highly recommends that travellers seek preventative antimalarial care before visiting a country with malaria risk. At Anna Pharmacy Richmond, we can prescribe and dispense effective malarone tablets, which contain antimalarials like atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. There are many combinations of prescription medicine that you can take to prevent malaria, and some of the most common types include:

1. Atovaquone and proguanil
You must start taking these tablets one or two days before your trip and take them once per day. Throughout your trip, you must take them every day up until seven days after you return.

2. Doxycycline
The recommended dosage is 100mg per day, which you must start taking one to two days prior to your trip. Throughout your trip, you must take it daily up until four weeks after your return

3. Mefloquine or Lariam
The recommended dosage is one 250mg tablet weekly, which should be started three weeks before you travel and taken throughout the entirety of your trip until four weeks after you return
