Avloclor (Chloroquine) tablets are used to prevent malaria. They are effective in only a few countries, mainly in Central America and should not be used to prevent malaria in Africa, South East Asia or South America.
Avloclor can be used in conjuction with Paludrine (Proguanil Tablets) to prevent malaria in India which are also available as a combined Paludrine and Avloclor Travel Pack.
Adult Dose: Take two Avloclor (chloroquine) tablets each week, on the same day each week. Starting one week before exposure to malaria, whilst in the malarial region and continuing for 4 weeks after return to the UK or last possible malaria exposure. Childrens doses should be calculated based on weight
Each tablet contains 250mg of Chloroquine Phosphate Ph. Eur equivalent to 155mg of chloroquine base
Avloclor tablets are usually very well tolerated but most commonly may cause headaches, nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea, blurred vision or rash.
No medicine is 100% effective against malaria. It is very important that you try to reduce the number of insect bites that you get in order to reduce your chances of catching malaria. Do not take Avloclor tablets if you have psoriasis or a family history of epilepsy. Consult your pharmacist or doctor before purchasing this medicine if you suffer from other medical conditions or are taking any regular medicines
