I'm in the Marine Corps and we just returned from South Korea. This week our Corpsman randomly gave us a small bag of Primaquine 15 mg pills that we're supposed to take twice daily. I have never had Malaria or any symptoms either when I was in Korea or right now. I've been taking them as prescribed for the past two days and I feel nauseated. Is it even necessary for me to continue taking these things? I'm back in the states and I'm taking Malaria pills, it doesn't make much sense to me. Answered by Johnny Koenigs 11 months ago.
If you are having side effects you should try to contact the medical staff for advice. They can decide if you should continue it or if there is something you can do to reduce the side effects. Primaquine is used to prevent malaria in people who have spent a long time in an area with relapsing forms of malaria. These species of malaria can hide out in the liver for some time and not be affected by the other antimalarials you were probably taking when you were there. Primaquine taken for two weeks helps eliminate any remaining malaria parasites you might have in your body. Answered by Shaquita Gunnells 11 months ago.

Asked by Rory Marchall 11 months ago.
Go to a local walk-in clinic. Tell them what you're wanting it for, and there should be little more to do. They'll give you a prescription, and pick it up at a local pharmacy. Answered by Lucio Muzquiz 11 months ago.
In the US, you can go to your regional department of public health. Most of them have travel clinics, tell them that you are going to a malaria endemic area and they will give you a prescription and any shots you may need. Most travel clinics are walk-in, and relatively inexpensive, so it's nice if you're uninsured or pressed for time Answered by Sharen Schlepp 11 months ago.

Malaria often requires treatment with medicine (antimalarial medications). Most of the time antimalarial medications effectively treat the infection; however, some malaria parasites may survive because they are in the liver or are resistant to the medication.

Do I NEED malaria medication (Malarone) for Nicaragua?
I'm traveling there on July 15th and I'll be there for 2 weeks, but I haven't gotten my malaria medication/pills yet. My insurance won't cover the prescription so I'll have to pay nearly $300 for it. Is it absolutely necessary or can I go without it?
Asked by Hermila Feltus 11 months ago.
Well actually, primaquine is the recommended drug now if you are going to an area of the country where malaria is a risk. But if cost is an issue or if you do not want to undergo the required blood test before taking this drug, doxycycline is just as effective as malarone and much cheaper, if you have no medical reasons not to take it. Answered by Louann Brew 11 months ago.
The medicine taken to prevent malaria is the same medicine used to treat malaria, so it is not like a vaccine that provides immunity. The advantage of taking the medicine is that you won't end up with severe malaria symptoms that would ruin your vacation, and it is less likely that you would end up with relapses in the future. Malaria symptoms can sometimes be dangerous, but its mostly African varieties, and serious danger is eliminated if you get treatment as soon as symptoms appear. People that live in Nicaragua don't take malaria medicine their whole lives, and travelers that visit for extended periods also do not take medicine the whole time. The CDC rates the risk of malaria in Nicaragua as low. Answered by Jammie Kremers 11 months ago.

Chloroquine or primaquine have no known adverse effects on heart patients, however avoid using quinine to treat malaria if you are suffering from arterial fibrillation, it can increase the the passage of atrial impulses to the ventricles, which causes a dangerous increase in ventricular rate.See your doctor or pharmacist.

I'm currently undergoing treatment for Malaria (P. Vivex). I've had 4 of 5 doses of Artenam, though the initial was actually a triple dose and I'm also currently on a drug called Amizole 500 which contains Tinidazole (though I'm really not entirely sure what this is for). I've searched around the internet and asked the doctor but none of them really seem to give me a straight answer. If someone could give me a non-Wikipedia type answer I'd really appreciate it. Answered by Arron Breit 11 months ago.
James, P. vivax malaria has classically been treated with chloroquine and primaquine. Primaquine acts against the liver stage, decreasing the risk of relapse. The parasite is becoming resistant to chloroquine and primaquine, so alternate drugs are being used and explored. It is suggested that recurrences of vivax malaria are effectively prevented by the current treatment regimen and dosage. However, recovery does NOT provide protection against another new infection of P. vivax or another malaria type of Plasmodium. I have seen men in Uganda who had 3 or 4 infections of dreaded P. falciparum in the same year, treated, "cured," and re-infected,. Answered by Paulita Spies 11 months ago.
