To calculate the number of tablets you need please follow the simple equation below to see how many tablets you need to purchase or alternatively email us or contact us via our live chat option to get a colleague to do the calculation for you.

3 + (NUMBER OF WEEKS YOU ARE STAYING IN YOUR COUNTRY OF DESTINATION) + 4

Example 1: if you are travelling for 26 days (Round this up to 4 weeks) the total number of tablets is calculated as 3 + 4 + 4  = 11

Example 2: if you are travelling for 37 days (Round this up to 6 weeks) the total number of tablets is calculated as 3+ 6 + 4 = 13

If you have used before and you only want to take for 1 week before travelling then just switch the 3 to 1. Example in Example 1 it would be 1 + 4 + 4 = 9 or in Example 2 it would be 1 + 6 + 4 = 11

Description

Malaria is a life threatening disease and a major health risk for travellers visiting tropical countries. It occurs when small parasites are passed from one person to another by the bites of certain mosquitoes. Lariam is especially useful if you are travelling to countries where there is a type of malaria which is particularly difficult to treat. No single medicine is effective against all malaria parasites. The choice of a particular medicine depends on the sensitivity of the malaria parasites found in the area to be visited. Your doctor or pharmacist will advise you whether Lariam is suitable for the area to which you wish to go.
