Malaria Tabs

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone can help with cost of tablets?

We are going to take Malerone as we have been advised it is the best with least side effects.

The cheapest I can find them is £55 for 24 tabs, so £110 for both of us!!

Anyone know if they are cheaper anywhere?

Also if anyone has pics of the Southern Palms I would love to see them!

Thanks ALL.

HI,

Travelpharm will set you back £95.92 plus Dr`s prescription.

The travel clinics(Masta) do not require a prescription and will charge£42.00 per 12. they do not split the boxes.

ALL the supermarkets require a Dr`s prescription!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can buy Malerone tablets from the pharmacy at Diani Shopping parade which isnt far from Southern Palms, they are most helpful in the pharmacy.

For the last 7 years have been buying Larium at the chemist always have enough to start treatment before going away then buy drugs there no script needed. A lot cheaper than UK
