Most popular antimalarial drug is Hydroxychloroquin. This is an active ingredient that has been found to help reduce the duration of symptoms of malaria. Although Hydroxychloroquine was originally used as over the counter antimalaria drug, it has also been prescribed to treat several other conditions, including migraine headaches, heart palpitations, and even high blood pressure. Teratogenicity is the term used for drugs that pose a risk of causing defects in unborn babies. A teratogen is defined as any substance that is potentially harmful to developing fetuses. In this case, the teratogen is the chemical substance chloroquine. Unfortunately, the chemical compound chloroquine was initially approved only to be later found to be carcinogenic.
When taking care of your pet's treatment, you should always consult a vet first. There are different types of medications available for different conditions. The most common type of medication for animals is Terbinafine. Terbinafine has two types: Terbinafine-D and Terbinafine-C. You may have heard that Terbinafine-D is used to treat dogs, cats and other animals with malaria. This is the same drug that is used for humans like Chloroquine. However, Terbinafine-D is not recommended for animals with AIDS or HIV as it can cause death. Terbinafine has an antimalarial activity. It acts by stopping the parasite from using an enzyme called NPN, which allows it to multiply. Terbinafine also prevents the parasite from sticking to and binding to cells of red blood cells and plasma. Once bound, the parasite cannot live on these cells. This is the reason why Terbinafine works so well against mosquitoes. Because Terbinafine is considered to be an antimalarial drug, you should consult a vet before you start giving it to your pet. This medicine should never be given to animals that have a history of malaria or have had malaria symptoms in the past.Rating: 9.9 / Views: 7243
