    Chloroquine, a 4-amino-quinoline, has been the backbone of antimalarial therapy and prophylaxis for 50 years. The incessant spread of resistance to chloroquine by P. falciparum is leading to a resurgence of malaria in most endemic areas. When chloroquine, doxycycline, or mefloquine is used for primary prophylaxis, primaquine is usually taken during the last 2 weeks of postexposure prophylaxis. When atovaquone-proguanil is used for prophylaxis, primaquine may be taken during the final 7 days of atovaquone-proguanil, and then for an additional 7 days.
