Introduction

Primaquine tablet comes from the family of drugs called antimalarials. The medication is prescribed in the treatment of Malaria, in combination with other medicines. To eliminate the threat of infection relapse and destroying the parasites completely, the intake of both the drugs is mandatory.


Use

Primaquine is prescribed for the treatment and prevention of malaria caused due to mosquito bites in countries where malaria is common. It is given in combination with other medicines. With mosquito bite, malaria parasites enter the body and begin to live in body tissues like red blood cells or the liver. Given in combination with other medicines, it starts working after the malaria parasites die inside red blood cells. The medicine then destroys the malaria parasites living in other body tissues. The process eludes the chances of relapse.
