How to take
You must take the tablets exactly as your doctor tells you to. The typical dose to prevent malaria is to take one Lariam tablet on the same day each week, starting 10 days before entering malarial areas. Continue with the tablets weekly whilst at malarial areas until 4 weeks after leaving the area. The minimum course of treatment should be 6 weeks, depending the duration of your stay in malaria risk areas. It is important to finish the whole course of treatment to ensure adequate protection.
Swallow the tablets with plenty of water and preferably after food.
Like all medicines, Lariam can cause some side effects, although not everyone gets them.
Common side effects of Lariam include depression and anxiety. It is important that if you experience any of these symptoms that you stop taking the tablets and contact your doctor immediately. This is because Lariam may cause some serious mental health problems in some people.
Other common side effects of Lariam are sleeping problems, dizziness, headache and problems with your vision. If Lariam does affect your vision, care should be taken whilst driving or operating machinery.
Although it is uncommon, if you notice severe allergic reaction with symptoms such as rash and itching, swollen eyes, face or lips and difficulty breathing, you should stop taking Lariam and seek medical advice immediately.
The full list of side effects can be found in the patient information leaflet attached below.
The 'Patient Information Leaflets' supplied with medication must be read before taking tablets.
