Mefloquine - Overview
Mefloquine is a medication sometimes prescribed to people who need prophylaxis for malaria. People who might need a mefloquine prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe mefloquine HCl medication when appropriate to do so.
Mefloquine - Dose and Cost
Mefloquine is sometimes marketed under the brand name Lariam. Mefloquine belongs to a class of medications known as antimalarial agents - similar to chloroquine and Malarone - and is considered a schizonticidal drug. When used for malaria prophylaxis, mefloquine is sometimes prescribed as mefloquine 250 mg once per week although the mefloquine prescription utilized depends on the judgement of the medical provider. Mefloquine is considered moderately affordable, costing under $3.50 per mefloquine 250 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Costs associated with a mefloquine prescription can also sometimes be reduced with the use of mefloquine coupons online or through using one's insurance plan (assuming there is mefloquine insurance coverage).
