Im off to SE Asia and India, my doctor perscribed me Lariam as it's a weekly pill and i will need to take it for about 4 months as im only gonna be in a non malarial zone for 2 weeks.

My mother's done some research and forbidden me to take Lariam as she is convinced I will go insane and kill myself.

so- as I have already paid £15 for the private perscription and then the money for the pills, should I ignore her and go with Lariam or should I spend close to £280 getting the course of Malarone?

I have taken doxycycline before with no side effects apart from quesiness for about an hour after I had taken it.
