Malaria prevention

  • Take the tablets once a week, always on the same day.
  • Take the 1st dose 2-3 weeks before you leave: this is to make sure that Lariam is well tolerated.
  • Continue taking the tablets on the same day of the week throughout your stay and for 4 weeks after your return.
  • The full course of tablets is at least 6 weeks, depending on your length of stay.
  • For effective prevention you must take the full course of tablets.
    • If you take too many tablets the likelihood and severity of the side effects may increase. There are no specific antidotes.

      If you take too many tablets or someone else accidentally takes your medicine, contact your doctor, pharmacist or nearest hospital immediately.

      If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible. If it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and carry on as before. Do not take a double dose.
