You don't need anti-malarials for most of Thailand.

For the border areas you may, but you must check which one is recommended. Doxy may not be the effective med and you will be popping pills daily for no reason. And probably getting the runs in the process.

I bought a few when I got an acute onset of bronchitis a couple of years ago....got a few days prescription in the UK and to be on the safe side,topped up a load more in Pattaya. Available OTC in any and all pharmacies,as an antibiotic. Price was minimal...same same Amoxycillin.


One thing to be aware of is that,once under their effect you should (or in some cases anyway) avoid strong sunlight as there's the potential for an adverse reaction.


I heard they are a treatment for syphilis also......

Build a man a fire,and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire,and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Doxy is available in all parmacies I have ever used and is cheap (80b a strip of 10 as I recall) . I know it can be used for Malaria but I thought there were other better options.


If you are in Pattaya or Bangkok I doubt you would be unlucky enough to contract malaria probably more fear of dengue these days ..... several of my friends have fallen ill with it.


The main risks will be on the borders of Thailand and Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar. The provinces of Kalasin, part of Krabi, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Narathiwat, Pattani, Phang Nga, Rayong officially (but not that I have ever sucumbed to), Sakon Nakhon (never had a problem either but that means squat), Songkhla, Surat Thani, and Yala, especially the forest and forest fringe areas of these provinces are still considered risk areas albeit low risk.
