Diana Folkerts on May, 29, 2010:
I am taking Metoprolol ER 25mg daily and want to travel to malaria countries such as Burma, Vietnam and East Africa (mission work and adventure travel). Can I take any anti-malarial with the Metoprolol? One doctor told me I could take doxycycline 500mg but it would make me sun-sensitive. Could I safely take malarone?

Malorone is expensive, but safe. - even in Sunlight, with the least amount of side effects of any other anti Malaria - CDC has complete info and flow chart to help you chose - I have never had a problem with Malorone and travel to east Africa often.
