Maleria dosage

Jump to last reply

The forum opinions seem to most favor taking Malarone over doxycycline before a trip to Africa. No one, however, stated the dosage to take. My med plan shows 250-100 mg tabs. What does this mean? They show a 25 day supply for $30 and the generic atovaquone-proguanil HCT at $5 for 25 days. Also, 62.5-25mg Malarone for $50 for 30 tabs. Do you take one per day with meals? Is it still necessary to take this if one slathers on DEET???

Thoughts please!
