When advising travellers on requirements for malaria, the only drugs that are licensed for over-the-counter sale for malaria chemoprophylaxis in adults are chloroquine and proguanil. For children, many of the doses required for chemoprophylaxis are higher than the licensed doses; therefore, off-licence doses should not be sold and must be prescribed. Atovaquone/proguanil, doxycycline and mefloquine are prescription-only medicines and cannot be sold over-the-counter under any circumstances for malaria chemoprophylaxis for any age group.
