Efficacy of Quinine

Quinine is traditional and effective preventative of malaria

Synthetic preventatives such as chloroquine, maloprim, and fansidar have largely replaced the use of quinine

Many strains of Plasmodium have developed resistances to the synthetics and the synthetics are more toxic.  It is recommended that people do not take fansidar for more than 3 months due to potential liver damage.
