Lariago Suspension is an anti-parasitic medicine. It is given to prevent and treat malaria caused by a mosquito bite. Additionally, it may also be used to treat bowel infections in children that are caused by another type of parasite (amoeba).

Give Lariago Suspension to your child by mouth, preferably after meals to prevent an upset stomach. Do not give antacids within 4 hours of taking this medicine as they may interfere with the absorption of the medicine. Lariago Suspension can be slightly bitter. You can mix it with fruit juices to mask the bitterness. If your child vomits soon after taking Lariago Suspension, help the child calm down and repeat the same dose after half an hour. However, skip the dose if it’s time for the next dose. Do not double up the dose to catch up for the missed one.

Give it as per the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor as that is based on factors such as your child’s weight, age, clinical condition, and treatment response. Lariago Suspension may be given in higher doses for the initial one or two days followed by low doses in subsequent days. Strictly follow the dosing schedule prescribed by your child’s doctor as prolonged use of Lariago Suspension can cause serious side effects in your child.

Lariago Suspension may cause side effects such as headache, nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhea, upset stomach, stomach pain, rash, itching, hair loss, or increased sensitivity to light. These are usually temporary. However, if these persist, seek your doctor’s help.

Let the doctor know about your child’s complete medical history including history of any allergies and ongoing medicine regimen. The doctor must be informed about any previous complications related to liver, kidney, brain, heart, muscle weakness, genetic problems, blood cell abnormalities, or ear and eye problems. This information plays a critical role in planning your child’s overall treatment.



In Treatment of Malaria

Lariago Suspension is used to treat malaria, a serious or life-threatening illness that is spread by a parasite that enters the human body by the bite of infected mosquitoes. It kills the infection causing parasite and stops further spread of the infection. Take it only as prescribed and refrain from taking any other medicines along with this medicine (unless advised by the doctor) as they may affect the absorption of this medicine. Do not use this medicine for treating any other condition without consulting your doctor.

In Treatment of Amoebiasis

Amoebiasis is an infection caused by a parasite named Entamoeba histolytica. It is often transmitted through contaminated food or water. Symptoms associated with Amoebiasis are not very common. However, in some cases where symptoms do occur, the severity may range from mild diarrhea to blood in stools (dysentery), intestinal inflammation, and pus in the liver (liver abscess). Lariago Suspension is given along with other medicines for the treatment of the above manifestations. Awareness of the quality of food, water, and sanitation conditions can help to prevent an infection.



Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Measure it with a measuring cup and take it by mouth. Shake well before use. Lariago Suspension is to be taken with food.



Lariago Suspension is an antiparasitic medication that is used to treat Malaria and Amoebiasis. It works by increasing the levels of heme and pH in the red blood cells where the parasite resides. It also acts by directly interfering with the genetic material of malarial parasites, thereby killing the parasite and stopping the infection from spreading.





Lariago Suspension is safe to use in patients with kidney disease. No dose adjustment of Lariago Suspension is recommended.
However, prolonged use may impact kidney function in your child. The use of this medicine is not recommended in children with severe kidney disease.

Do not panic. Unless your doctor has advised a specific regime for your child, you can give the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it’s almost time for the next dose. Do not give the double dose and follow the prescribed dosing schedule.

Malaria can be prevented by taking certain precautionary steps like covering your arms and legs to prevent mosquito bites, using a mosquito net and insect repellent.
