Im going on holiday next week (8th October) and will need to take malaria tablets, chloroquine(avloclor) on sunday.

I just wanted to double check but is it the safe to take with birth control (lizinna)?

Sounds like something you should ask from your doctor.

Do a Google search too.

One old post came up with a Google search:

But there are many more like below sample. (Might be best to use a laptop or other big computer for research.)

It's your life so get professional advice!

P.S. All of the malaria pills I have taken recommended taking the pills around a week before entering the malaria zone.

I don't know how accurate this is, I would still supplement it with a doctors opnion:
