What are Avloclor tablets for?
Avloclor contains a medicine called chloroquine phosphate. This belongs to a group of medicines called 'anti-malarials'. 'Anti-malarials' can be taken in certain parts of the world to help prevent malaria. This is a serious disease spread by infected mosquitoes.
How do I use Avloclor?
Swallow the tablets with a drink of water. If you take a medicine for indigestion (such as an antacid), do not take it within two hours, either before or after, of taking chloroquine. This is because antacids interfere with the way chloroquine is absorbed by your body, making it less effective.
