The major part covered here to develop the combination therapy required to treat malaria to avoid over or low dose during the treatment. The main drug used in the treatment is Chloroquine and Azithromycin to cure in shortest period of time. In present invention, the development of fix dose combination of Azithromycin and Chloroquine required treating malaria as most effective treatment. Based on overall literature search and studies, it was found that Azithromycin 250mg and Chloroquine 200mg are most suitable strength and combination to be used to trate the malaria. The objective of the present study was to formulate suspension of Azithromycin dihydrate (AZT) and Chloroquine (CQ) as fix dose combination useful to treat Malaria. Individually, Azithromycin and Chloroquine tablets are available in the market to treat malaria. However, there is no fix treatment dose are given during treatment.
