Travelling to a Malaria-risk Zone?

Mefloquin is highly effective and convenient, and many doctors continue to prescribe it. If you are concerned, and have questionsabout possible side effects, the place to start is with your doctor or pharmacist.
There are other anti-malarial drugs available in Canada:
  • Doxycycline, taken daily, was used by Australian troops in Afghanistan.
  • Malarone is taken daily.
  • Chloroquine is used in some cases, but there are some chloroquine-resistant areas.
A combination of chloroquine and a medication called proguanil was used by British troops in Afghanistan, andthe U.S. Army, in co-operation with the Australia military, is working to develop a new anti-malaria drug called tafenoquine. Phase three of the clinical trials is due to take place in 2003.
