Travel Clinic

When traveling to other destinations, it is always important to make sure you are healthy and in the best possible condition.

More specifically, if you are going to a place with malaria, you must visit a Travel clinic to get the proper medications before your trip. Malaria is a tropical disease spread by a parasite, which can cause symptoms like headache, fever, and chills. Since the first symptoms are typically similar to a flu, it is hard to detect malaria. However, if the disease is not treated immediately, it can lead to more severe consequences, including death.

Malaria cases in the UK are often imported into the country, which means they come from travelers returning from countries with the disease. Thus, Travel Clinic Services are becoming a necessity to prevent the risk of infection. Should you need any help with this, Anna Pharmacy has a Travel clinic in Carshalton, Sutton, Hackbridge, Wallington, and Croydon. Make sure to drop by any of them if you are planning to go on a holiday soon.

Antimalarial Medications for Travelers

The NHS highly recommends that travelers always get antimalarial medications before visiting a place with malaria risk. Here at Anna Pharmacy, we can help you get your malarone tablets, which contain antimalarials like atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. There are many types of medication you can take to prevent malaria, and some of the most common types include:

1. Atovaquone and proguanil
You must start taking the tablet one or two days before your trip and take it once per day. Throughout your trip, you must take it every day up until seven days after you come back.

2. Doxycycline
The recommended dosage is 100mg per day, which you must start taking one to two days prior to your trip. Throughout your trip, you must take it every day up until four weeks after you come back.

3. Mefloquine or Lariam
The recommended dosage is one 250mg tablet weekly, which should be started three weeks before you travel and taken all throughout your trip until four weeks after you come back.
