Amatem Forte Soft Gel – 80/480mg, 6 Soft Gel Capsules

Amatem Forte Soft Gel active ingredients, Artemether and lumefantrine are anti-malaria medications that interfere with the growth of parasites in the red blood cells of the human body. Malaria is caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito.

This prescription medicine is proven to work by blocking the synthesis of nucleic acid and proteins, which kills the parasitic organisms that cause malaria. It can be used in patients weighing 5 kg (11 lb) and above.

It is indicated for the treatment of adults and children with acute, uncomplicated infections due to Plasmodium falciparum or mixed infection including P. falciparum and strains from multi-drug resistant areas.

Amatem Forte Soft Gel Capsules is recommended for use as a standby emergency treatment for travelers to areas where the parasite is resistant to other drugs.

What is Amatem Forte Soft Gel used for?

Artemether-Lumefantrine is a powerful dual drug that can treat both acute and complicated malaria infections of adults, children and infants. It has been shown to be effective against the most dangerous type of plasmodium,which means it’s also recommended for those who have developed resistance towards other antimalarials in their area or if you want an even better chance at getting rid of those pesky parasites altogether!

Malaria is a terrible disease that can quickly lead to complications if left untreated. To help prevent the spread of malaria, travelers should carry an artemether-lumefantrine combination drug for self-administration in case they become sick with symptoms and are unable able get medical care within 24 hours after onset.

Symptoms of Malaria

Symptoms of malaria can¬†develop as quickly as 7 days after you’re bitten by an infected mosquito.

Typically,¬†the time between¬†being infected¬†and¬†when symptoms start (incubation period) is¬†7 to 18 days, depending on the specific parasite you’re infected with. However,¬†in some cases it can take up to¬†a year for symptoms to develop.
