Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
MALARONE (Atovaquone + Proguanil) Is a combination prescription product effective against malaria. It can be used for the prevention or treatment of malaria.
MALARONE is one of many different anti-malarial drugs given to travelers before they depart to countries with high malaria rates.
If someone becomes actively infected with malaria, MALARONE is a possible treatment option.
The MALARONE dosing depends on why it is being taken:
The active ingredients in MALARONE are atovaquone and proguanil.
Atovaquone works in the mitochondria of malarial cells. It prevents the mitochondria from functioning, which inhibits key cellular processes, killing the parasite.
Proguanil inhibits dihydrofolate reductase, which is a critical enzyme in the metabolic pathway of malarial cells. Proguanil prevents the malarial parasite from developing inside the liver prior to infecting red blood cells.
Tell your doctor if you have a history of liver or kidney problems. Your labs should be monitored before treatment with MALARONE.
MALARONE may be less effective in obese patients (>100 kg).
Tell your doctor if you experience vomiting or diarrhea after taking MALARONE.
Common MALARONE side effects may include:
