Treatment of Malaria, continued

Drugs that are in use for treatment against malaria:
  • chloroquine
  • atovaquone-proguanil
  • artemether-lumefantrine
  • mefloquine
  • quinine
  • quinidine
  • doxyclycline (used in combination with quinine)
  • clindamycin (used in combination with quinine)
  • artesunate (not licensed for use in the United States)
Treatment of uncomplicated non-falciparum malaria consists of treating the erythrocytic forms and determining if the species is from a chloroquine sensitive or chloroquine resistant area. Chloroquine-sensitive non-falciparum malaria is treated with chloroquine or artemisinin combination therapy (ACT). Chloroquine-resistant non-falciparum malaria is treated with ACT.
Treatment of uncomplicated malaria caused by P. falciparum is ACT.
