Chloroquine phosphate for prevention:
Adults should take one dose (typically a 250mg tablet) per week, on the same day of the week. Start taking chloroquine phosphate two weeks before traveling to a malaria-affected area. Continue while you are in the affected area and for 8 weeks after you have left. If you are unable to start taking chloroquine phosphate two weeks before travel, your doctor may have you take a larger dose.
For children, the dosing will be different. Your doctor will calculate how much the child needs based on his or her weight.
