Does anyone know if there's a reputable chemist or pharmacy in Delhi that sells Malarone and roughly how much it costs? Many thanks in advance.

no Malarone

I was in Delhi last fall on business and my trip got extended, so I needed more Malarone. I called a few pharmacies and the hotel doctor and the US Embassy medical center, and was told that Malarone is not sold in Delhi. I had to have someone from the US who was travelling over bring me some. They did have alternate varieties of malaria pills, that you take weekly, etc, but not that particular brand.

Malarone is not available for purchase in India. You can buy doxycycline instead which is what I use when I am in India.

So how about finding Malarone in Delhi these days? The last posts are from 2006, just wondering if there are any recent developments. Cheers.

Heading to Delhi in a few weeks' time, would be great if anyone had an update on whether or not Malarone is now available to buy in Delhi. Cheers!

Malarone is not licensed for India. There was a patent infringement knockoff for awhile but it was caught. There is no indication whatsoever that the policy will change. Even if it were to happen, the cost would be nearly the same as elsewhere judging from Singaopore. Check out the Canadian online pharmacies, its somewhat cheaper there..
