Description

Details

Avloclor contains a medicine called chloroquine phosphate. This belongs to a group of medicines called ‘anti-malarials’.

‘Anti-malarials’ can be taken in certain parts of the world to help prevent malaria. This is a serious disease spread by infected mosquitoes. Avloclor will give some degree of protection (prophylaxis) against malaria in certain countries.

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 Avloclor is suitable for the part of the world that you are visiting. In some countries you may have to take Avloclor with another medicine for maximum protection.

Knowledge

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.

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.

When to start taking your medicine

  • Start taking this medicine one week before you enter the malaria area.
