What Paludrine/Avloclor Anti-malarial Travel Pack is and what it is used for

The name of your medicine is ‘Paludrine/Avloclor Anti-malarial Travel Pack’. It is referred to as ‘Anti-malarial Travel Pack’ in the rest of this leaflet.

Your Anti-malarial Travel Pack contains two types of tablets:

  • The Paludrine tablets contain a medicine called proguanil hydrochloride.
  • The Avloclor tablets contain a medicine called chloroquine phosphate.

Both medicines belong to a group of medicines called ‘antimalarial’.

Antimalarial drugs can be used in certain parts of the world to help prevent malaria. This is a serious disease spread by infected mosquitoes. Your Anti-malarial Travel Pack will give some degree of protection (prophylaxis) against malaria in certain countries. It can be used when it is necessary to take more than one type of medicine at the same time to help prevent malaria.

Medicines to help prevent malaria (malaria prophylaxis) are recommended for:

  • People travelling to countries where malaria occurs.
  • People living in malaria areas who are not immune to malaria.

These people have little or no immunity to malaria, so they are at risk of severe attacks.

You must get medical advice on which anti-malarial medicines to take.

You must ask your doctor or pharmacist if this Anti-malarial Travel Pack is suitable for the part of the world that you are visiting.

Avoiding mosquito bites

When you are taking this medicine to prevent malaria, you should also reduce the chances of being bitten by mosquitoes.

  • Wear light-coloured, long-sleeved clothing and long trousers when you are outside after sunset.
  • Use insect repellent creams or sprays on parts of your body not covered by clothing.
  • Sleep in a properly screened room or under a mosquito net.
  • Spray to kill any mosquitoes that may have entered rooms in spite of screening.

If you have a high temperature

No medicine can be guaranteed to protect against malaria in every case. If you have a high temperature (fever) during your visit to a malaria area, or up to a year after returning home, you should suspect malaria. Contact a doctor straight away and let him or her know that you have visited a malaria area.
