It would be safest to try to conceive at least 3 months after the last day of taking anti malarial.
Following suggestions for time to allow after finishing a course of antimalarial, before attempting to conceive:
• Mefloquine: 3 months.
• Doxycycline: 1 week.
): 2 weeks.
Chloroquine and proguanil are considered safe in all trimesters of pregnancy
. However, their major disadvantage is the relatively poor protection they give in many geographical areas due
to the presence of drug-resistant P. falciparum. Pregnant women taking proguanil should receive supplementation with 5 mg folic acid daily.
Hope this helps.
