In brief: Depends on where-

Several different regimens are available depending on the species of plasmodium (based on geography and smear of blood) and the the severity of infection.
Your doctor will ask the appropriate questions or else refer you to a travel medicine/id specialist to help determine the most appropriate therapy.
