Chloroquine/Proguanil product information


Chloroquine/Proguanil packs combine two 'anti-malarial' regimens together, which are Paludrine and Avloclor. Paludrine contains a medicine called proguanil while Avloclor contains chloroquine.

Malaria is caused by the bite of an infected mosquito which spreads the malaria parasite, P.falciparum. These components kill the parasites in the blood. Paludrine/Avloclor anti malarial travel pack is used to prevent malaria.

Note: no anti-malarial tablet is 100% effective against malaria and you may need additional measures to prevent getting bitten by infected mosquitoes. Visit our page for malaria for specific medical information.


How to take

You may need to start taking the tablets for a specific time period before and after entering malaria risk areas. Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist tells you to. The usual dose for malaria prevention is to take two avloclor tablets once a week on the same time each week AND two paludrine tablets once daily on the same time each day. You should start taking the tablets a week before entering malarial areas and continue with this medicine throughout until 4 weeks after leaving the area. It is important to finish the whole course of medicine to gain adequate protection.

It is preferable to take this medicine after food and swallow the tablets with a drink of water. 


Side effects of Chloroquine/Proguanil

Like all medicines, chloroquine/proguanil can cause some side effects, although not everyone gets them.

Some common side effects include stomach upset such as diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting, sore mouth/ulcers and headache. It is important that if you experience dizziness or blurred vision that you avoid driving or using machinery.

Chloroquine can also cause low blood glucose level. Your doctor will be able to tell you how to recognise signs of symptoms of that.

For a full list of side effects, please refer to the patient information leaflet attached below.

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 the combination pack and seek medical advice immediately.


Cautions

During a Medicinesbymailbox online consultation, you will be required to complete an assessment questionnaire to determine your suitability for anti-malarial medication. You should not take Malarone without consulting a doctor if you:
  • Are allergic to chloroquine or proguanil
  • Are taking a medicine used to control heart rate called amiodarone
  • Have liver or kidney disease
  • Have ever had convulsions or fits


Chloroquine may cause heart rhythm disorders in some patient. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you were born with or have family history of a medical condition in the heart called prolonged QT interval, if you have heart disorders or have a history of heart attack.

You may need to take additional supplements that contain folic acid if you are pregnant. It is best to consult a doctor or pharmacist for more advice.


Some medicines can also interfere with how the medication works, for example the blood thinning medicine Warfarin, some anti-convulsanr medicines and praziquantel, a medicine used to treat infections of the bowel or bladder. If you are unsure, you should check with a doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Medicinesbymailbox can only prescribe medicine to adults (18 years or over).
