Visited the Dr last week and was quite surprised that she told us we should take malaria pills before and during our holiday. She prescribed Malarone. Wondering if most people take this? Many side effects? Just kinda worried since we have to start this the day before we leave and don't want to be sick on our holiday. Also we have a 9 year old. I guess if side effects aren't bad it will be better to be safe. Thanks.
