Falcigo 60 mg contains the active ingredient Artesunate, an antiparasitic medication used to treat malaria. Artesunate, the medicine's active ingredient, belongs to a group of medications known as antimalarials. It is the first-line treatment recommended by WHO for severe malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum in children and adults. It treats malaria, a red blood cell infection transmitted by the bite of a mosquito. Artesunate is a short-acting parasite more rapidly than conventional antimalarials because it is active against both the sexual and asexual stages of the parasite cycle, destroying all stages, thus resulting in more rapid recovery. The medicine is given by a doctor and should not be self-administered.
Do not use Falcigo injection if you are allergic to this active ingredient Artesunate or any other medicine ingredient.
