Malaria Treatment If you have epilepsy and need to take malaria tablets, there may be some issues. Some of the malaria tablets do not interact well with anti-epilepsy medication so you need to talk to your doctor to find a suitable malaria tablet that will both protect you and won’t interfere with your epilepsy medication.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend against treatment of malaria with chloroquine alone due to more effective combinations. In areas where resistance is present, other antimalarials, such as mefloquine or atovaquone, may be used instead.

Certain types of malaria, resistant strains, and complicated cases typically require different or additional medication. Chloroquine may increase cyclosporine blood levels. Cyclosporine blood levels should be monitored and, if necessary, chloroquine should be stopped. Combining chloroquine and mefloquine may increase the risk of seizures.

  6. Lupus Nausea" Lupus Community - Support Group I also had chills and a fever of 100.6. I then laid around in bed, couch for 5 days. I thought maybe I had a stomach bug. Then 2 weeks later it hit me again just not quite as bad. The nausea has been so bad that I ended up going to the Dr for medicine. Now I won't leave the house without the medicine out of fear I will be somewhere and get sick.
