Malarone® (atovaquone/proguanil) is one of several medications used to treat malaria. It can also be prescribed to prevent this condition. It comes in the form of a tablet and is sold as a brand-name drug only. Common side effects include back pain, headache, and stomach pain.
Malarone is typically taken once a day. Each dosage should be taken with food or milk. This will help ensure that your body absorbs as much of the medicine as possible. If you vomit within an hour of taking a dose, it's important to take another one.
