    Hello all,

    Does a drug named "Snip" exist? If yes, what is it active ingredient and dosage strength please. Is it a Malaria drug?

    Thank you

    I have had malaria lots of times, and come from a place where malaria is endemic. But I have never heard of "Snip." However, I may be wrong. Google is your friend.

    I know my pharmacy dispenses Malarone for those going to areas where malaria is endemic.

    I just looked on Facts and Comparisons and there is no record for a "snip." Could there be another name for it? I was thinking of malarone myself.

    Chloroquine phosphate is also for extraintestinal amebiasis.

    Could "snip" be a local or slang term for it? It doesn't make much sense that a malaria drug would have one of these, but it is a possibility.

    If you get the actual trade or generic name for what it is I'm sure someone on here can get you what the FDA indication is and probably some off-label uses. ;)
