So this has been ided as a Wikitravel:Slippery slopes and I think we need to discuss it. On one hand, it's something that should be covered, and maybe we don't want to repeat the same background basics on every malarial-country page. On the other hand, users should be able to get all the info they need for a country on that country page. Additionally, I'd hate to see everything single traveller's health issue get it's own page ("Bug bites" "Splinters" "Blisters"). So where's the middle ground? Ideas?
To quote the article:
"It does have a number of contra-indications and must be prescribed by a doctor, and has also been known to have very rare but severe neurological side effects."
A friend has had some neurological side effects from Lariam. He described them as paranoid delusions - he said he felt for the first week in Ghana that everyone was ready to kill him. I'll see if I can't get him to add his stories here. 188.8.131.52 01:00, 24 July 2010 (EDT)
