Hi welcome to HCMForum. You got malaria and got treated success fully for the thing is follow up treatment. It may differ from doctor to doctor and
patient to patient. You can follow either of the priscription. As they have given you medicine for controlling side effects of quinine tablets, so you need not
worry about side effects of the drugs. ganatone will look after the matter. As malaria is an infection causing destruction of RBC and hence blood.
So i advise you some diet recomendations as Take more of green leafy vegetables pulses sprouts egg milk meat fruits and juices to build up good health
and resistance. thanks for calling.
