is rotam and maladar malaria medicine?
I have never heard of Rotam, but Maladar is the brand name of a combination sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine, and is used to treat malaria. However, it should be noted that it is not recommended by the World Health Organization as a first-line treatment option, due to concerns about drug resistance, and also lack of efficacy against certain types of malaria.
Instead, first-line recommended treatment is of an artemisinin-based combination therapy, or ACTs, which combine an artemisinin derivative (such as artesunate, artemether or dihyrdoartemisinin) with another anti-malarial drug, such as lumefantrine, piperaquine or mefloquine. Common brand names include Coartem, Lonart and Duo-Cotecxin.
