Mozambique

Good day.
We will be travelling to Moz. for the April school holiday.
My son can''t take any Malaria medication due to him being on Purbac and Oratane. I asked my chemis if he would recommend us taking Malaria medication but he replied no. According to him I should also not be taking this medication due to my chronic medcation (Cipralex an Lamicten)
What is your suggestion?

We will be travelling to Guinjata

Dear Susan,
As far as I can make out Guinjata is north of Maputo, if this is so malaria has been rife with increased rains so I would definatly say all precautions plus prophylactic medications should be taken. Your son could take Malanil and come off the Purbac for duration of treatment. You should also consider Malanil as this may compatable with your lamicten. Confirmation with your neurologist is required.
Regards,
Pete
