Quoting qifitness

By the way... side effects are not guaranteed. Personally, my daughter and I have not had any whatsoever from Paludrine+Avloclar (recommended for Goa) during our visits.
(Another always/usually/sometimes/never debate?)

Gifitness, is that what you take in Goa? Im in Thailand for a month then into Laos and apparently you need at least a month between stopping and starting a new Malarone course so using an alternative for Goa would be good.

Thanks!

I have been to Goa twice in the January period when there was not a hint of rain and I was bitten many times by mosquitoes. I was glad I was taking two kinds of anti malarial tablets (I met someone who only took one type and got malaria.)

Considering the life long consequences if you get malaria, I would certainly take them, and they must be taken for the full period before and after to insure immunity.

On my internet forum, I have a medicine and health section and one very long thread (241 posts over 10 months) deals with incidents concerning the incompetence of doctors. They are not all knowing and not always competent.
