Customer Question

My friend is in rural Ghana and contracted malaria. She has malarone and was given Lumether (also called Rezatrin Forte- according to research I have done): 80mg of artemether and 480mg of lumefantrine. Should she continue to take malarone while taking Lumether bid for 3 days or should she stop the malarone while taking the Lumether?

She should only take Lumether if that is what was prescribed to her.
I would not advise taking any additional drug.
For malaria a course of Lumether is sufficient.
