Malarone is an antimalarial that is clinically proven to prevent and treat malaria.
It is an excellent option if you are travelling to an area resistant to malaria tablet Chloroquine. This includes countries in Africa, Oceania and South America.
It works by preventing the growth of the malaria parasite, which stops and kills the infection.
You take one tablet once daily to prevent infection and is available in multiple pack sizes online at euroClinix.
Atovaquone is one of the two active ingredients in Malarone alongside Proganuil. You can buy a generic version of Malarone containing those two ingredients.
Atovaquone, on its own, is prescribed to treat other types of infections.
Malaria is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. The parasite enters the bloodstream and causes malaria symptoms.
Malarone contains two active ingredients: atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. These ingredients work together to prevent the parasite from spreading.
They interfere with parasite growth in the red blood cells and liver. This stops symptoms in their tracks and prevents infections from ever occurring.
