Lariam is a popular anti-malarial for travellers going to malaria regions for extensive periods of time. Its popularity can be attributed to the dose, just one a week, and the excellent value for money it provides.

This particular anti-malarial should probably not be used by patients who have not tried it previous, or at least without speaking to one of our malaria prevention experts first as it can be associated with side effects. Don't let this put you off though as it can be a very useful anti-malarial tablet for certain groups of patients.

Lariam should not be taken by patients with the following problems:

  • known allergy to Lariam or the active ingredient Mefloquine
  • current or historic psychiatric disorders, including but not limited to generalised anxiety disorder, depression, epilepsy, suicide attempts and schizophrenia
  • history of blackwater fever
  • Severe liver failure
  • Ongoing use or use of Halofantrine in the last 15 weeks

Dosage: Please note it is recommended that Lariam is taken as follows:

For Adults over 45kg: Lariam is taken once weekly starting 10 days before you enter a malarial area, the second dose taken 3 days before and then continue to take on the same day of each week whilst there and for four weeks after leaving.

A typical 2 week (14 day holiday) would therefore require 8 tablets. hat breaksdown to TWO tablets before, TWO whilst there and FOUR on return.

For Children:The dose schedule is the same as the adult but instead of one tablet weekly the following amount should be administered depending on the childs weight:

  • 5-19.9kg (3mth-5yrs): Quarter tablet
  • 20-30.9kg (6-8 yrs): Half tablet
  • 31-45kg (9-14yrs): Three quarter tablet

Each Lariam tablet contains the following active ingredients:

Mefloquine Hydrochloride 250mg

This tablet contains Lactose
