Dispensing instructions:
Lumefantrine absorption is enhanced by co-administration with fat. Patients with acute malaria are often averse to food, therefore, they should be encouraged to resume intake as soon as they can tolerate food to improve absorption. Patients or carers should be advised of the need to take Artemether and Lumefrantine with milk or fat-containing food, particularly on the second (2nd) and third (3rd) day of treatment.

Patients should be advised to repeat dose if vomiting occurs within one hour of taking the last dose.
