Paludrine and Avloclor FAQs

What are the benefits?

The primary benefit of Paludrine/Avloclor tablets is that they offer effective, dual-action protection against a range of malaria parasites. It is particularly recommended in areas that are considered to be of lower risk like India. Paludrine/Avloclor tablets are particularly beneficial to people who are particularly sensitive to certain medications, because their mild dosage is less likely to cause side effects than other antimalarials.

How does Paludrine/Avloclor work?

The chloroquine phosphate in the Avloclor tablets attacks the malaria parasites after they have entered the red blood cells and stops them from multiplying. It does this by stopping a chemical that is produced by the parasites to protect them-selves. When this protection is gone, the parasites are vulnerable to the natural defence mechanisms of the body.

The proguanil hydrochloride in the Paludrine tablets also prevents the malaria parasites from multiplying, though in a slightly different way. It targets the enzyme responsible for the reproduction of the parasite. Without this ability, the parasite cannot spread.

Who can take Paludrine/Avloclor tablets?

Paludrine/Avloclor tablets are considered safe for most people who are over 18. However, you should make sure you note any medical conditions you have or any medications you are taking during your online consultation. The medication may not be suitable for elderly people or those suffering from psoriasis, a G6PD deficiency or liver or kidney disease. If you have a neurological, gut or blood disorder it is unlikely that you will be prescribed this medication.

If you are allergic to any of the ingredients contained in either of the medications, or have a history of epilepsy, you will not be prescribed this medication.

How to take Paludrine/Avloclor tablets

You should begin this course of treatment one week before you start travelling and continue to take the tablets until four weeks after you return. The course of treatment entails taking two Avloclor tablets per week. The Paludrine tablets should be taken twice a day, ideally after food, at the same time every day.

What are the side effects of Paludrine/Avloclor?

The likelihood is that you will not experience any side effects while you take either the Avloclor tablets or the Paludrine tablets. However, this is a small possibility of some mild effects such as headaches, stomach upsets and mouth ulcers. The risk of these effects will be reduced if you only take the tablets after food.

If you are concerned about any side effect you should contact a healthcare professional for advice. If you experience a severe reaction you should seek medical assistance immediately.

Can this medicine affect other medicines?

It is important to be completely open and honest about the medicines you’re taking during your online consultation. These include medicines bought without prescription and herbal medicines. Similarly, it is advised that you consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking any new medicines, while taking Paludrine/Avloclor. This is to ensure that the combination is safe.

Antacids lower the absorption of chloroquine and proguanil from the gut; as a result the full dose may not be absorbed into the body. Antacids should not be taken 2-3 hours prior to or after taking this medicine. Kaolin should also not be taken in the 2-3 hours prior to or after taking this medicine.
