Different types of malaria tablets

There are 3 malaria tablet treatments that we prescribe, 2 of which contain the same medications. Before choosing a treatment, speak to your doctor, as they will be able to inform you which malaria tablet is best for the country you are visiting.

Malarone

This malaria tablet contains two active ingredients (medications) called atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. It should be taken 24 to 48 hours before travel, throughout your trip, and 7 days on return. You should take one tablet a day with a milky drink or food, as this makes sure the tablet is absorbed properly. Malarone is suitable for most travellers and does not often have side effects.

Atovaquone and Proguanil

This is the unbranded or generic version of Malarone and contains the same active ingredients, which are atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. These malaria tablets do the same job and should be taken in exactly the same way. Like Malarone, they are a good choice if you are travelling for a short amount of time, as they only need to be taken for 7 days on return.

Doxycycline

This is an antibiotic containing a medication called doxycycline and can also be used to prevent malaria. It should be taken 24 to 48 hours before travelling and should not be stopped until 4 weeks after you have returned. It is important not to drink alcohol with Doxycycline.
