Start taking this medicine one week before you enter the malaria area. You must continue to take it during your stay. You must keep taking this medicine for 4 weeks after leaving the malaria area. For adults and children, take two Aralen tablets once a week on the same day each week. Take the tablet after food. Swallow the tablet(s), or part tablets, whole with a drink of water.
