Uses

Laveran (Proguanil) is an antimalarial agent used for prophylaxis (prevention). Its mechanism of action involves blocking the reproduction of the parasites responsible for causing the disease. The malaria disease infects the red blood cells and is transmitted via the bite of an infected mosquito. This medicine affects the plasmodium falciparum and plasmodium vivax parasites, and blocks the action of the enzyme needed by the parasite to recreate its DNA. As a result of this, malaria infection can be prevented.

Dosage and Administration

Laveran (Proguanil) is provided as 100mg uncoated tablets and is administered by means of the oral route. The exact dosage regimen might vary slightly based on individual circumstances. Treatment generally needs to start before travel, and is continued for the entire duration of the trip, as well as for a specified period of time after return. Your physician will determine the right amount to take, however, in general, adult patients are told to take 1 tablet per day for the prevention of malaria.

Side effects

Use of the antimalarial medication Laveran (Proguanil) might lead to side effects. Contact your physician if this happens. A list made up of some examples is given here:

  • Nausea
  • Loose stools
  • Discomfort in the stomach
  • A noticeably reduced appetite
  • Hair loss which is not permanent

The occurrence of relatively mild side effects is generally more common than severe reactions. However, it is necessary for all patients to take note of the fact that immediate medical attention (such as a visit to the emergency room or a consultation with a physician) will be required should serious side effects occur.

Precautions

In addition to taking Laveran (Proguanil) for malaria prevention, it is necessary to take other precautions which include using a suitable insect repellent, wearing long sleeved clothing, and sleeping under a treated mosquito net.

Should you become ill while travelling to an area known to be affected by malaria, or after your return, see your physician immediately to make sure that you have not been infected by malaria.
