Reviews for Mefloquine
For Malaria Prevention: "i was suppose to take it for six months but i did stop using it after two months as i suffered from strange dreams, paresthesia, numbness, fasciculations, sleep jerks and panic attacks. my symptoms did not disappear but they did improve with time. i think the reason was using other drugs while using mefloquine such as tramadol for migraine."

Lariam (mefloquine) for Malaria Prevention: "I took this for two years whilst in East Africa. Although many people told me it was not good, I found no side effects and never have suffered from Malaria. I had regular Liver function teats and no adverse symptoms were found."

Lariam (mefloquine) for Malaria Prevention: "I took one of these and felt nearly suicidal within a few hours. The warning labels say if you have previously experienced "certain psychiatric conditions" then you should not take the medication. Well, those conditions include garden-variety depression which a pretty large percentage of the population has experienced. "
