Although Paludrine/Avloclor Antimalarial Tablets will provide protection from malaria, there are no malaria tablets which offer 100% protection. This is why it is so important to know what else you can do to protect yourself from malaria, mainly by avoiding mosquito bites. You can reduce your chances of being bitten by mosquitos by wearing light, long-sleeved clothing and light trousers when you are outside, using insect repellent creams or sprays, and sleeping under a mosquito net.
