Also Known As: Atovaquone/proguanil, Malarone
The drug combination atovaquone/proguanil (INNs, trade name Malarone) is an antimalarial medication used in both the treatment and prevention of malaria, commercially available from GlaxoSmithKline since 2000. Atovaquone alone is not indicated for treatment or prevention of malaria as monotherapy (i.e. without proguanil).
A "standard" tablet of Malarone contains 100 mg of proguanil hydrochloride and 250 mg of atovaquone. A "pediatric" tablet of Malarone contains 25 mg of proguanil hydrochloride and 62.5 mg of atovaquone.
