Chloroquine Phosphate – An Antimalarial Medication

Generic Aralen contains an active drug called chloroquine, which belongs to a family of drugs called antimalarials and amebicides. It is a widely prescribed medication for the treatment and prevention of malaria. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1949, chloroquine is typically the first line of treatment for malaria caused by certain strains of malarial parasites. Apart from preventing and treating malaria, Generic Aralen is used to treat amebiasis that occurs outside of the intestines. Chloroquine is a prescription drug so make sure you use it under the supervisor of your primary care physician. Chloroquine is similar to hydroxychloroquine, which is also used to treat and prevent malaria.

I’m a frequent traveler and I always keep Generic Aralen tablets with me to prevent malaria because I visit places where malaria is an epidemic. I buy Generic Aralen online from this pharmacy. Offers me good deals.
