Why take

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the Artemether + Lumefantrine (AL) combination found in Shal’Artem as the first treatment choice for uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria.

  • The AL combination found in Shal’Artem is highly effective. In fact, it has a cure rate of better than 98% and leads to rapid resolution of fever in malaria.
  • Firstly, Artemether in Shal’Artem rapidly kills the malaria parasites to resolve malaria symptoms quickly. Secondly, the long-lasting action of lumefantrine prevents the reappearance of malaria symptoms.

Shal’Artem uses an Artemether & Lumefantrineand combination. This is a safe and effective treatment for all age groups of patients suffering from malaria.

Artemether and Lumefantrine inside Shal’Artem kill malaria parasites through various different mechanisms. Therefore, the malaria parasites’ chances of resistance development are low.

  • Shal’Artem’s AL combination treats malaria very successfully compared to single-drug therapy like chloroquine.
  • An AL combination is also more effective than the artesunate & sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine combination as an antimalarial.
  • Furthermore, Shal’Artem’s use of the AL combination is also better tolerated than the amodiaquine & artesunate antimalarial combination.
  • Shal’Artem is a single-pill combination of Artemether & Lumefantrine.
  • A convenient twice a day dosing of Shal’Artem for three days ensures better adherence to the therapy.
  • Shal’Artem is available in various formats like tablets and dispersible tablets, dry syrup, and packs of 6, 12, 18 and 24 tablets.

Shal’Artem is a quality product manufactured under the Shalina Healthcare brand at a WHO-approved manufacturing facility.

Symptoms

Chills & shivering

Shal’Artem antimalarial products could be indicated with the following symptoms:

  • A feeling of being cold without an apparent cause
  • It may occur at the start of an infection and is commonly associated with fever.  Shal’Artem undoubtedly resolves malaria fever rapidly.
  • It is a body’s automatic defence mechanism against cold temperature. In other words, an attempt to warm itself.
  • In malaria, chills followed by fever develops when malaria parasites burst the red blood cells. Shal’Artem rapidly kills the malaria parasites.
  • Fever and chills are one of the primary symptoms of malaria. In relation, Shal’Artem effectively combats these.

Fever

  • Higher body temperature (>99°F) than normal
  • It’s an indication that the body is trying to fight an illness or infection.
  • Minor infections may cause mild or short-term fever.
  • We can consider body temperatures of 103°F and above high. Furthermore, it can signal a potentially dangerous infection, e.g. malaria.
  • In malaria patients, fever can be low grade to high grade. Furthermore, patients can present with or without chills, and either intermittently (every 48-72 h) or continuous or prolonged.

Headaches

  • A pain arising from the head or upper neck of the body.
  • It is a fundamental presentation in malaria.
  • An essential factor leading to headaches in acute malaria is the cytokine (chemicals released in the body due to infection or injury).
  • Headaches from malaria can occur on one side or both sides

Fatigue

  • Malaria can present by way of an overall feeling of tiredness or lack of energy. It is one of the symptoms of many diseases, e.g. malaria, dengue, flu.
  • In malaria, fatigue is one of the common symptoms. Furthermore, Malaria is also associated with a high fever and chills.
  • In severe cases, fatigue can occur due to hypoglycaemia due to the utilisation of the body’s glucose by parasites for their multiplication and functioning.
  • Besides this, excessive bursting of red blood cells (RBCs) leads to anaemia, leading to fatigue in malaria.

Body-ache

  • It is the common symptom of many conditions, including malaria and can occur in the back, shoulder, legs, neck etc.
  • The malaria parasite attacks the body’s skeletal system, causing muscle aches, muscle contractures, muscle fatigue, muscle pain, and muscle weakness.
  • In severe malaria, death of skeletal muscle can occur due to blockage of blood supply to skeletal muscle by the malaria parasite.

Diarrhoea

  • It is also called loose stools, in which the passing of either loose or watery stools happens three or more times a day.
  • The incidences of diarrhoea in malaria vary from 5 – 38 %
  • In malaria, diarrhoea can occur because of injury to the liver, pancreas and intestine caused by the malaria parasite. Shal’Artem kills malaria parasites quickly.
  • In addition to this, certain chemicals like prostaglandins contribute to the development of diarrhoea in malaria.

Nausea and vomiting

  • Both nausea and vomiting are the symptoms of many different conditions like malaria and stomach flu.
  • Vomiting is very common in malaria due to high-grade fever, the disease itself or even drugs.
  • Vomiting may pose problems in administering antimalarial treatment.
