Teva Chloroquine Dosage

Prevention of malaria: For adults, the dose of chloroquine is usually 500 mg once a week, taken on exactly the same day every week. To prevent malaria, start taking the tablets 2 weeks before leaving for an area where malaria is a risk and continue taking the tablets for 4 weeks after your return. Children's doses are based on body weight.

Treatment of malaria: For adults, treatment usually begins with a 1 g (1000 mg) dose followed by 500 mg after 6 to 8 hours. This is followed by a single dose of 500 mg on each of 2 consecutive days. This makes for a 3-day total dose of 2.5 g. Children's doses are based on body weight.

Chloroquine may be taken either before or after meals.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.
