I was unconscious and fell to the ground. I went to the hospital and the doctor said it was malaria. He gave me malareich which was one dose for the treatment. I want find out if that is the effective medication for this malaria and if the symptoms will never happen again. The one happened when i was a kid,the second happened when i was 21 yrs and now am 28 yrs and it happened again.
Malareich is a known anti-malarial drug, which consists of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine, and is taken as a single dose. The World Health Organization however no longer recommends sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine drugs as first-line anti-malarials,
preferring people instead to take artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) such as Lonart or Coartem. Moreover,
sulfadoxine-pyrimethamines are not very effective against some types of malaria, namely Plasmodium vivax, so shouldn’t be given without a positive diagnosis of Plasmodium falciparum malaria.
