Dihydroartemisinin oral suspension is a drug manufactured and used to treat malaria. Its active ingredient, dihydro-artemisinin, is the active metabolite of all artemisinin compounds and is also available as a drug in itself. It is also sold commercially in combination with piperaquine and has been shown to be equivalent to artemether-lumefantrine. Dihydroartemisinin powder for suspension is recommended in the treatment of acute malaria attacks, as it is potent against multi-antimalarial resistant parasites.
