These tablets are effective at protecting you against malaria parasites. If taken before you are bitten, it can prevent you from becoming infected with the virus.
Malaria is a tropical disease which is spread by infected mosquitos. Anyone can get malaria. Symptoms of the disease are similar to a heavy flu, such as fever, headache, vomiting and tiredness. If left untreated, malaria can be deadly. If you notice any symptoms, always seek medical advice.
When traveling to a tropical country, always check in advance whether it is a malaria hotspot and take the necessary precautions.
Start the course of Maloff Protect 1 or 2 days before you travel, so that the drugs are in your system, ready to fight off any malaria parasites.
Keep taking the pills at the same time every day to ensure the protection is effective, until the course is finished (7 days after you return to a malaria-free area). Take Maloff Protect with food or a milky drink, where possible.
If you vomit within one hour of taking your Maloff Protect tablet, take another dose straight away. If you don't start vomiting until more than one hour after taking Maloff Protect, do not take another Maloff Protect tablet until your next dose is due, as it is likely that Maloff Protect will already be in your system.
Always check the enclosed information leaflet.
