I traveled to east Africa , start taking mefloquine two weeks ago , my third tablet is almost due , the problem that i started to have neuropsychiatric side effects and i cannot continue the same treatment , to what another medicine can i switch and how to do the switching to avoid any drug drug interaction?
I remember when a coworker of mine was taking Mefloquine. He claimed to have a very lucid dream of a little girl sawing her arm off. But I digress, you could try Doxycycline, I couldn't find and side effects on the drug interaction and, unlike Mefloquine, you don't need to start taking it weeks prior for it to work. Keep in mind though that even though there isn't any drug interaction side effects listed, that doesn't mean any exist... And there are some potential side effects including light sensitivity. Good luck!
