How does Lariam work?

Lariam is an anti-malarial prescription medication used to prevent malaria parasites developing in your blood. Malaria can be a fatal disease caused by mosquitoes. Mosquitoes that are infected carry plasmodium and when bitten will inject into the bloodstream.

Once plasmodium is in the bloodstream the parasites will travel into the liver where they multiply. Parasites are then released back into your bloodstream and invade the red blood cells and they multiply yet again. A malaria attack develops when your red blood cells pop, releasing parasites into your bloodstream.

How do I take Lariam?

Lariam needs to be started prior to entering a malaria prone area. One tablet is taken 1 week before leaving and then once a week while at your destination. After returning home or leaving the destination you need to continue to take lariam once a week for 4 weeks. It is best to take the medication on the same day every week, which helps form a routine and are less likely to forget to take the tablet. Lariam is taken after a meal with glass of water.

Side effects

All medicine has side effects associated with taking them however not everyone will suffer from them. Keep in mind that the benefits of taking medication to prevent a serious condition are more important than some minor side effects. Most side effects usually only last 1-2 weeks when taking a new medication.

Common side effects include:

  • Nausea

  • Anxiety

All medication will come with side effect information from the manufactures. It is also best you talk to your doctor if you have any concerns as they maybe able to change the dose you are currently taking or change medications.

    I took this for two years whilst in East Africa. Although many people told me it was not good, I found no side effects and never have suffered from Malaria. I had regular Liver function teats and no adverse symptoms were found.

    Used this for 7 months in central africa during UN-mission. We were a contingent of 150 soldiers using it. Out of the 150 soldiers using it, only a few experienced some side effects. The good thing is that you only have to take it once a week.
