Know More About Quinine

Uses of Quinine 

Quinine is used in treating malaria. It is suitable for both adults and children. However, if the child receiving treatment is under 8 years old, a secondary medicine or drug will be given to assist in the treatment process. Quinine is available under the trade names Qualaquin and Quinbisul. 

Quinine Precautions and Warnings 

Prior to obtaining a Quinine dosage or prescription, you should tell if you are pregnant. Note that pregnant women are prohibited from using this medicine as it can harm the unborn baby. Other than that reason, Quinine can cause abortion, plus renal failure in women. Furthermore, if you are hypersensitive to Quinine and its main components, tell your doctor immediately as any known hypersensitivity can be fatal. 

Quinine Dosage 

Most of the time, treatment involving Quinine will last for a week. The dosage recommendation on a daily basis will depend on the intensity of the disease to be treated. You should expect to be prescribed several doses daily to ensure that the infection or illness will be treated immediately. Do not miss a single dose as much as possible. If you do, avoid double doses. Since the consumption is hours apart, you should be able to schedule your doses.
