About Chloroquine and/or Proguanil
Chloroquine is taken at a dose of two 250mg tablets weekly for malaria prevention. Malaria parasites in many parts of the world are resistant to Chloroquine, and it is now rarely the recommended prophylaxis. Travellers can find up-to-date information about which tablets are recommended for different countries at the NHS Scotland website Fit for Travel by following the links to malaria and malaria maps for each country.
Where chloroquine is recommended, it is most often used in combination with proguanil. When chloroquine and proguanil are taken together, the adult dose is two tablets of chloroquine each week, and two 100mg tablets of proguanil each day. Chloroquine together with proguanil is usually supplied in weekly packs, each pack containing fourteen chloroquine tablets and two proguanil tablets.
Proguanil, which is almost never used on its own for malaria prevention, is best known under its trade name of Paludrine. Chloroquine is supplied in the UK under its trade name of Avloclor.
Obtaining malaria tablets online
Dr Fox supplies a range of malaria tablets following an online consultation. We supply medicines only for over 18s. Further information about malaria prevention in children. A full range of malaria medicines are available for children and infants, but not online.
When obtaining malaria tablets online, it is important to be sure that the correct tablets are requested – see recommendations at the NHS Scotland Fit for Travel website.

- Start one week before entering a malaria area, throughout stay, and for 4 weeks afterwards.
- Take with food. Take on the same day each week, preferably at the same time of day.

- If chloroquine is taken long term or above recommended dose, it could affect the eyes, leading to patchy vision. Eye examinations and blood tests are required if chloroquine is taken very long term (for a year or more).
- People with significant kidney disease (not including occasional urinary infections) or liver disease require assessment and advice before taking chloroquine.
- Chloroquine could worsen psoriasis.

Chloroquine/Proguanil (Paludrine/Avloclor) combined packs

Notes on malaria prevention
Some types of travel, particularly ‘rough travel’ in remote areas, carries a higher malaria risk. Risks of malaria may also vary depending on the time of year, usually increasing in wet seasons.
Take malaria tablets exactly as prescribed and complete full courses, including in the case of chloroquine and proguanil, 4 weeks of treatment after exposure. Read manufacturer’s information supplied with tablets and follow instructions carefully.
Malaria symptoms can take more than 4 weeks to develop and in some cases can occur up to a year after infection. Symptoms of headache, fever, joint pains and vomiting should be reported promptly to a doctor who should be made aware of previous malaria exposure.Start order
