Reviews for Mefloquine
Review by Stevepoa:
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.

Review by tigo (taken for 1 to 6 months):
For Malaria Prevention: After taking mefloquine I suffered from "sleep starts". Although I stopped using it, a new symptoms a rised like anxiety, parasthesia, hyper-reflexia, muscle twitching. It has been two years now but still having these symptoms but to a lesser extent.

Review by RolandD:
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.
