Hi, thank you for asking Healthcare Magic.
At this point in time, there is no contraindication to fansidar given that you are not pregnant yet. This drug should be avoided in the first trimester because it can affect the fetus. Other diseases can produce symptoms that are similar to those of malaria and usage of drugs without indication might lead to resistance. I would suggest you go for diagnosis first before taking treatment.

I hope that answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. We will be delighted to answer more questions from you.
