Quinine (quinine sulphate) is used alone or with other medications to treat malaria. Malaria is caused by mosquito bites from countries where mosquitos carrying the parasite Plasmodium falciparum are endemic.
Do not use Quinine to treat any medical condition other than malaria, and only as specified by a doctor. Specifically, note that the FDA withdrew the approval for use of quinine sulfate to treat nocturnal leg cramps owing to the increased risk of bleeding and heart rhythm disturbances.

Dosage

Only take Quinine as prescribed. The tablets can be halved or crushed if the dose does not require a whole tablet whole. The dose should be taken with food or milk.
The standard minimum dose for treating malaria is 10 mg per kilo of body weight three times per day for 7 days. This normally equates to 2 tablets (each delivers 300 mg) every eight hours for adults. For children under the age of 8, it would be one-quarter to one-half of a tablet three times a day, and from ages 9 to 14, one to 1.5 tablets three times daily. It is essential to follow the prescribing doctor’s specifications and finish the full course of treatment regardless of whether or not the symptoms have abated.

Read the information leaflet that comes with the medication.

Most people who are taking Quinine do not experience any negative side effects. Doctors prescribe Quinine because they assess that the benefits that such treatment yields outweighs any likely unwanted effects.

Some of the side effects that have been reported include:

  • headache
  • blurred vision or changes in color vision
  • sweating or flushing
  • mild dizziness, or a spinning sensation
  • tinnitis (ringing in the ears)
  • diarrhea, vomiting or abdominal pain.

Not all side effects are listed here. If these or other unlisted symptoms persist or worsen, consult a healthcare provider or pharmacist.

Quinine is prescribed to treat people who are infected with malaria. It is not used as a preventative against infection from mosquito bites, but only once the infection has set in.

Up until 2010, Quinine could also be prescribed to treat nocturnal leg cramps, but this approval was withdrawn owing to the associated serious side effects.

  • Does quinine water help with malaria?
    Popular soft drinks such as Bitter Lemon and Tonic Water contain minute amounts of quinine. Although quinine medication kills the parasite that causes malaria, in small doses such as in a bottle of tonic water, the quinine has no direct effect on the body, and does not represent a relevant treatment for malaria.
  • When should I take Quinine for malaria?
    To decrease the possibility of a stomach upset, it is recommended that Quinine tablets are taken with food, and 2 to 3 hours before or after using any antacid medication that contains aluminum or magnesium (such as Mylanta and Gaviscon). Such products bind with the quinine and prevent fully absorption of the drug.
  • Why did people drink quinine?
    Its effectiveness against malaria was documented more than 400 years ago, and for much of the intervening period, it was the only effective prevention against infection from mosquito bites that were endemic in the tropical regions. Quinine was the first anti-malarial drug in modern medicine and remains an important drug 4 centuries later.
  • Is quinine good for your legs?
    Until 2014, Quinine was also being prescribed to treat nocturnal leg cramps, However, despite being moderately effective in decreasing the frequency and intensity of muscle cramps, it is also associated with some serious adverse effects. As a result, the FDA withdrew approval of Quinine for any condition other than malaria.
  • Why is quinine not used as a prophylaxis for malaria?
    Quinine is so effective at suppressing the symptoms of malaria that it leaves a person with latent infections after all the symptoms have cleared. These people carry gametocytes that are still infected with live Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite that enters red blood cells in the body after a mosquito bite. The people are therefore a potential source for the infection of third parties.
