What is Lariam and what is it used for?

Lariam is an antimalarial medicine used to treat and prevent the development of the malarial parasite P. falciparum in areas with antimalarial drug resistance. It contains the active substance Mefloquine hydrochloride at a dose of 250mg.

How does it work?

When an infected mosquito bites a person, it passes the parasite onto its human target. The choice of antimalarial drug depends on the sensitivity of the malaria parasite in your destination area. Lariam targets the malarial parasite and destroys it.

How do I take Lariam?

Those that have a body weight more than 45kg should take one 250mg tablet once a week on the same day, starting 2-3 weeks before entering the malaria-affected area and continue the treatment until 4 weeks after leaving. It is recommended that you swallow the tablets whole with plenty of water, preferable after a meal.

How is Lariam different from Malarone?

Although they are both medications used to treat or prevent malarial development in the human body, they have different active ingredients and directions for administration. Also, Lariam has more side effects than Malarone, which are more severe as well.

What are the side effects of Lariam?

Lariam has more side effects than other antimalarial medications. These side effects that can affect one in ten people using the drug and include:

  • stomach pain
  • headache
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • anxiety
  • depression
