About these pages

When I was preparing for my Kilimanjaro Climb I had a lot of difficulty finding information about which drugs I needed, which brands would be best, which ones could be taken in combination. There was a lot of information on the internet but none of it was really tailored to my specific needs. It took me a long time to figure out which was the best type of malaria drug to take and where I could get it for a reasonable price (the betters ones are way more expensive, thank you GSK).

So to make it easier for other people in my position I've created a brief guide to the drugs I have used while travelling and try to provide a list of the best places to buy them.

Sorry for the lack of nice design and layout, that's something I'm still working on.

Laurence's Malaria Drug Guide

Other drugs I've used for malaria:
  • doxycycline
  • larium

  • Drugs that i've also taken at high altitudes:
  • malarone (malaria)
  • imodium (diarrhoea)

  • Note: By no means am I a doctor, there are only my personal experience with these drugs, so obviously please look elsewhere for proper scientific information and the other dangers of taking these drugs. If you want further information from me then please feel free to drop me an email.
