I am from the UK and am planning to go to the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana) in October. I have been prescribed Malarone from the nurse at my local GP’s, although my mothers nurse informed her that this drug is not suitable for this area? I would appreciate any help, many thanks.
Malarone is suitable for travel to the Dominican Republic. However, the type of malaria found there is also still considered sensitive to chloroquine, so chloroquine is also an acceptable form of chemoprophylaxis for travel to this country. Mefloquine and doxycycline can also be taken.
