malleria tablets

thinking of going to arpora (marinha dourada) in March 2012 its been 12 years since we went to candolim no doubt lots of changes since then. We feel we would like to go back again What do you do on malleria tablets do you get some at home and the rest in goa . Back then the money went a long way seems the same now reading the trip advisor reports . Thanks

Get them at home. You have to start them BEFORE leaving for Goa,

See the nurse at your doctors first !

You need to have chloroquine and proguanil that you take in combination. If you buy the drugs in Goa, it's likely you'll only be given one of the two and they don't work singly - only together. You need to take them for a week before you go and a month after you get back, so I would advise buying them here. Check with your health centre and don't forget all the other jabs you're likely to need as well!

You need to start taking them a week before you go to build up the immunity Tomas, we buy them there ready for the next year but you have to watch the use by dates.
