My husband and I both took Malarone.
Under the advice of fellow forum poster, jasher, we did a trial run a couple of months before we left. I took it for 7 days and my husband took it for 5 (different doctors).
We had NO, I repeat, NO side effects. Take it. It is much better to feel a little sick, which I doubt you will, than get that terrible disease.
Then, you take it 2 full days before you enter the malaria zone, while you are in the malaria zone, and then 7 full days after leaving the malaria zone. I am talking about Malarone, the newest drug with the least, if none, side effects.
It's really no big deal. We took it every night before bed. Take it.
