How to take atovaquone and proguanil

Take 1 atovaquone and proguanil tablet at the same time each day after having food or a milky drink.

  1. Start 1 or 2 days before travelling to a malarial area
  2. Continue each day during your stay
  3. Keep going for 7 more days after you leave and are in a malaria-free area

You need to finish taking all of the tablets you’ve been prescribed. Do not stop taking your atovaquone and proguanil tablets unless:

  • a doctor or pharmacist tells you to
  • you experience side effects that make you feel unwell

If you take an atovaquone and proguanil tablet and vomit within 1 hour, you’ll need to take another tablet. If it’s been more than 1 hour since you took your last tablet, you do not need to take another tablet.

If you forget to take a tablet, take it as soon as you remember. Then continue your course as usual. You do not need to take any extra atovaquone and proguanil tablets.

The patient information leaflet in your box of atovaquone and proguanil tablets has more details.
