The choice of anti malaria tablets will be dependent on numerous factors such as:

  • Destination
  • Duration of travel
  • Individual patient characteristics and medical history.

These factors would all be taken into consideration before deciding the most appropriate antimalarial for a patient. Budget would be another important factor to acknowledge as the price of antimalarials vary significantly.

Patients are recommended to speak to their GP, travel nurse or consult websites such as FitForTravel to establish which antimalarial medication would be most suitable for them.
