In all of these cases the symptoms developed after commencement of antimalarial
therapy indicating inflammatory response to parasite killing.
But for now, a six-day treatment--rather than the standard three--of artemisinin plus another antimalarial
seems able to clear resistant infections, the study shows.
Some important considerations to ensure effective malaria case management include availability and accessibility of antimalarial
medicines, training of healthcare workers at all levels of healthcare delivery and dealing with the problem of antimalarial
Historically, plants used in traditional medicine as antimalarials
and febrifuges have provided substances which have proved to be useful as antimalarials
or have served chemists as structural models for the development of semi-synthetic drugs or purely synthetic analogs.
Nascent iodine could be used in malaria both as a therapeutic and chemoprophylactic agent as an alternative to traditional antimalarials

Among all these antimalarials
chloroquine is most widely used because of its efficacy, safety and cost effectiveness.
Side effects of antimalarials
include nausea or diarrhea and, in rare cases, damage to the retina of the eye.
Overlapping adverse effect profiles and potential drug interactions between antiretrovirals and antimalarials
should be considered.
