Dear. Dr.

I am going to Uganda and Kenya and would like to use Malarone for malaria protection (I have used it before and tolerated it well). Is it ok to take Malarone for 6 weeks or is there a maximum period which I can take it for? Thanks

Yes you can take Malarone for 6 weeks and it should be fine with diving. Remember to take all relevant precautions to stop getting bitten too!
