In brief: Comlicated

The choice of therapy depends upon the particular form of malarial parasite with which you are infected, and the sensitivity of these plasmodia to various forms of treatment in the particular area of the world in which you acquired the infection.
Combination of drugs helps to prevent relapse from intrahepatic forms of the parasite.
