Additional recommended knowledge
Pamaquine was the first synthetic antimalarial drug.
Pamaquine is effective against the hypnozoites of the relapsing malarias (P. vivax and P. ovale); and unlike primaquine, it is also very effective against the erythrocytic stages of all four human malarias. One small clinical trial of pamaquine as a causal prophylactic was disappointing (whereas primaquine is an extremely effective causal prophylactic).
60 mg once daily for 14–21 days.
When treating Plasmodium vivax, an initial course of chloroquine is unnecessary.
