Customer Question

Hi I am a uk citizen and just recently gone to Colombia. I am epileptic and take tegretol. I have been told the only anti- malarials I can take are malarone. I left my tablets at home by mistake and urgently need to get some. Where can I get them from in Colombia? I am currently in Santa Marta.

This is Dr. David
Malarone is atovaquone/proguanil
I would travel to Bogota at the university hospital there.
