Suggest medication for malaria while suffering from ulcerative colitis

Hi, I have ulcerative colitis and am going away to Tanzania soon. I went last year and took doxycycline but I only had my first flare up in March, so now I need some advice on what malaria tablet would be best to take. I m taking 75mg Mercaptopurine and 2g Pentasa. Thank you

HIHello,

I really appreciate your concern, if your query is concern about the prophylactic medicine for malaria then Tab Chloroquine still remains the gold drug as long as prophylactic is concern and you can try this.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Akhtarhusain
