Malaria medication for children

Jump to last reply

I am concerned about potential side effects of malaria medication on my 8 yr old. From whatever I have read, Malarone seems to be the preferred medication, but even that can have severe side effects in some cases?

I would like to hear from parents who travelled with children in this age range what worked best. If there is diarrhoea etc., it would make the travel difficult, but abandoning the medication is also dangerous, so what are the options?

Please advise!
