      Drug Composition information
      How does Dehydroemetine work:

      It is also used to treat parasitic infections such as amoebiasis.

      How should Dehydroemetine be used:

      Take Chloroquine exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor. Take Chloroquine at regular intervals as instructed. Do not skip any doses. Continue to take it even when you feel better. You must complete the entire course unless otherwise directed. If you do not complete the course, the infection may not clear completely. If you are taking Chloroquine for the prevention of malaria, the tablets should be taken once a week on the same day each week. Prevention should be started 1-2 weeks before travel, continued during travel and for 4 weeks after leaving the area. Take Chloroquine together with food or immediately after a meal to minimise stomach discomfort. For children who cannot swallow tablets, the tablets can be crushed and mixed with liquid beverages or food just before swallowing; this also helps to mask its bitter taste. Do not give Chloroquine to a child unless instructed to do so by the childs doctor.

      Common side effects of Dehydroemetine :

      Side effects experienced with Chloroquine when taken for the prevention of malaria are usually mild and may include stomach discomfort and nausea. It may also turn your urine brownish-black; this is temporary and is not a cause for worry. However, long-term treatment at higher doses may cause the following side effects: vomiting, loss of appetite, rashes or itch, bleaching of hair, hair loss, headache and tiredness. Alert your doctor quickly if you develop hearing problems, eye problems (e.g. blurred vision or difficulty focusing) or muscle weakness at any time while you are on Chloroquine.

      What do I do if I miss a dose

      Take a missed dose as soon as you think about it. If it is close to the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your normal time. Do not take 2 doses at the same time or extra doses. Do not change the dose or stop this drug. Talk with the doctor.

      What precautions should I take when taking Dehydroemetine :

      Do not take Chloroquine if you have a history of allergic reactions (difficulty breathing, severe rash, swollen eyes) to similar medicines such as hydroxychloroquine or primaquine. Alert your doctor if you have a history of epilepsy (seizures or fits), liver or kidney problems, other medical conditions such as alcoholism, psoriasis, porphyria, myasthenia gravis or an inherited condition known as G6PD (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase) deficiency. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
