What is the medication for malaria?

My child is on 14 days course of primaquin fo malaria. 9th day i.e., yesterday evening onwards she started complaining of stomach ache and today of nausea as well. A doctor has prescribed cyclopam (1/2 tablet) for stomach ache and ondem syrup (5 ml) for vomitting / nausea. She is 6 years 10 months and weighs 18 kgs. Are these medicines okay to take?

Diabetologist 's  Response
Primaquin for 14 days is the treatment for malaria to prevent any reemergence of disease.
Both cyclopam for abdominal pain and ondem for nausea/vomiting is given for symptomatic relief. Yoi can give them in the prescribed dose as long as the symptoms are there otherwise you can discontinue them. Contact your pediatrician if the symptoms are severe despite tablets or if there are any other unusual symptoms like change in urine colour or haemorrhage.
