freakout, phase 3: the mefloquine edition

I have just taken my first dose of my antimalarial medicine. The list of side effects on this thing is a little scary: upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, loss of appetite, muscle pain, dizziness, loss of balance, ringing in ears, headache, sleepiness, difficulty falling or staying asleep, and unusual dreams. Golly. I haven't slept well, truly well, in months, so I'm a little concerned.

You should be fine. I've taken it for Asia and Africa, and only note that I feel mildly fuzzy for the first few minutes after taking it, then fine.

It's better than getting malaria. Especially since it's so uncommon in the U.S. that it often goes undiagnosed for weeks.
