Parenteral artesunate is the treatment of choice for all severe malaria. Furthermore, artesunate is simpler and safer to use. It can quickly and reliably control the acute attack and cerebral type of malaria. It is effective against plasmodium falciparum and plasmodium vivax, especially against malaria parasites resistant to chloroquine. Artesunate has been reported to clear fever in patients with severe falciparum malaria 16-25 hours after parenteral administration.

Drug-induced fever can occur. Neurotoxicity has been observed in animal studies but not in humans. In view of the uncertainty about toxic effects, caution should be exercised when more than one 3-day treatment is given. Cardio toxicity has been observed following administration of high doses.

Parenteral artesunate should be used for the treatment of severe falciparum malaria only where there is evidence that the antimalarial efficacy of quinine is declining.

The powder for injection is difficult to dissolve and care should be taken to ensure that it is completely dissolved before parenteral administration. It should always be used immediately following reconstitution. If the solution is cloudy or a precipitate is present, the parenteral preparation should be discarded.

Use in pregnancy:
Little experience has been gained with the use of this drug in pregnancy but the parenteral preparation should not be withheld if it is considered life-saving to the mother.

Store in cool place. Protect from light. Keep out of reach of children.
