I just read several posts on here about the side affects of taking Mefloquine to help prevent contracting malaria.
I am leaving for my trip on a Wednesday morning and need to take one tablet per week. I will most likely take the first one on the Sunday or Monday before my trip. (I won't be in a Malaria area until the following week).
Do the side effects last for days or is it just the day you take the pill?
I am a bit concerned and wondering now if I should call my doctor and ask to switch the prescription to Malarone. I don't want my trip to be ruined on account of unpleasant side effects of this medicine.
