Thanks to online pharmacies and healthcare providers, it has become easier and more convenient to purchase malaria tablets online without having to personally meet a doctor. Travellers can simply buy malaria tablets online weeks or days before their trips to high-risk countries. This is very convenient especially for those who don’t have time to see a doctor to get prescriptions or even go to a pharmacy. All they need to do is order from an online healthcare provider. Simple, right?
Do note that before you are allowed to buy malaria tablets online, you have to go through the right process. You'll still need an electronic prescription from a qualified physician. Don't worry - when you sign up to an online healthcare provider, you will be immediately directed to an online consultation page where you will be asked to provide your medical details. The online doctor can suggest suitable malaria tablets according to your answers, and you can order your medication directly from their partner online pharmacy. Your order will be delivered to your address within a few days.
It is important to take note that not all malaria tablets online will be safe to take. Thus, it is imperative to do an online consultation with a GMC-registered doctor before deciding which brand of malaria tablets you should buy. This is especially necessary for pregnant women and people who are taking regular medications that may interact with malaria pills.
Answering the medical questionnaire fully and truthfully is the most crucial part of an online consultation. Your online doctor needs to know your medical history to prescribe the right dosage and the duration. The doctor will also need additional information about the country you'll be travelling to and the activities you'll be doing. That way, you will be prescribed the right type of malaria tablets that works best with the type of malaria parasite in that particular part of the world. Healthy Travels!
