Can I take malarone (atovaquone and proguanil)? ? For my months stay in thailand.. ....Will be remote place and urban.. .

Malarone (atovaquone and proguanil): This is a safe medication & good to take if you are concerned about catching malaria. True, the maps show 'malaria' in South East Asia, but your doc should also consider 'where' you are going in Thailand. Bangkok for example, doesn't have malaria since it's a big city. You want to avoid the mosquito bite while traveling because it's not just malaria -I would say dengue is actually more important.

Is there any documented success with the drug ketek in combination with malarone (atovaquone and proguanil)?

Is there any documented success with the drug ketek in combination with malarone (atovaquone and proguanil)?

Not strong evidence: While some may now write in their own story of success-which we would all be glad to hear-there are not human studies which back the widespread use of this combination. These medicines are sometimes used in babesiosis, lyme disease, and bartonellosis, but the jury is still out. Locate the best infectious disease doctor you can and seek their wisdom and advice first. In this example-go for the top!
