Atovaquone / Proguanil Side Effects

What should I watch for?

If you get a fever during or after you are in a malaria-endemic area, call your doctor. Tell your doctor that you may have been exposed to malaria.

This medicine can make you more sensitive to the sun. Keep out of the sun. If you cannot avoid being in the sun, wear protective clothing and use sunscreen. Do not use sun lamps or tanning beds/booths.

While in areas where malaria is common, take steps to prevent mosquito bites.

  • Stay in air-conditioned or well-screened rooms to reduce human-mosquito contact.
  • Sleep under mosquito netting, preferably one with pyrethrum-containing insecticide.
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts or blouses and long trousers to protect arms and legs.
  • Apply mosquito repellents containing DEET to uncovered areas of skin.
  • Use a pyrethrum-containing flying insect spray to kill mosquitoes.
