Please read the following section if you are taking the tablets to help prevent you from catching malaria.

• Take the tablets once a week, always on the same day.
• Take the 1st dose 10 days before you leave: this is to make sure that Lariam is well tolerated.
• Take the 2nd dose 3 days before you leave.
• Continue taking the tablets on the same day of the week throughout your stay and for 4 weeks after your return.
• The full course of tablets is at least 6 weeks, depending on your length of stay.
• For effective prevention you must take the full course of tablets.
• No anti-malarial tablets can be 100% guaranteed to work. There is a chance you could still get malaria during or after taking medicine to prevent it. If you develop a fever or flu-like symptoms during your travels or within 2 to 3 months after you leave the malarious area, check with a doctor immediately.

Adults and children over 45 kg body weight, dose:
One tablet weekly (always on the same day).
A pack of 8 tablets is enough to help prevent you from catching malaria if you are staying for 2 weeks in an area where malaria is present and you start taking the tablets at 10 days and 3 days before departure.

Adults weighing less than 45 kg (99 lbs) should take the children's dose.

Whether you are an adult or a child you should not take the tablets for more than 12 months.
