Malaria

Malaria is a tropical disease passed on to humans by mosquitoes, and is present in over 100 countries. Malaria is spread by the female of the Anopheles species of mosquito. When one of these mosquitoes bites you, it feeds on your blood and injects malaria parasites into your body. It only takes one bite to infect you. In some forms of malaria, parasites can stay dormant in your body for years, occasionally "waking up" and causing you to have more attacks of malaria. However, you can't catch malaria from another person, just from a mosquito.

Malaria predominantly affects countries in Africa, South and Central America, Asia and the Middle East. The disease is particularly widespread in sub-Saharan Africa.

Malaria Prevention

Malaria can be a potentially fatal condition and it is vital for travelers to take precautions before, during and after a trip to countries affected by this disease.

The type of medicine that you are prescribed, and the length of your treatment, will depend on a number of factors so it is important to seek appropriate medical advice.

PharmacyDirectGB can prescribe a number of anti-malarial drugs from our online pharmacy including Malarone and Lariam which are effective preventative medicines for malaria.

These medications are available on through our online consultation service.

Malarone (Atovaquone plus proguanil)

Malarone is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, babies, and small children under 24lb, or people with severe kidney problems. Dosage for adults is one tablet a day, which can be started just one to two days before your trip and finished a week after you get back.

Lariam (Mefloquine)

Lariam is not recommended for babies under 11lb, people who have had epilepsy or psychiatric problems, or people with heart problems. The dosage for Lariam is one tablet a week starting three weeks before you go, and carrying on for four weeks after you get back.
