Please note that several members this last season reported cases of malaria in Goa- not just to locals.
You MUST get advice from your doctors surgery. Opinions of members here are just that-opinions. We at HT encourage you to follow the medical guidelines. Holidaytruths cannot support any recommendations from members to go against the advice that goes with the medication
As I have suffered with the side effects from the malaria tablets and therefore chose not to take them I would be interested to find out what time of the day most of you take the tablets and if this plays a part in the side effects experienced, i.e. is it better to take them as you go to bed, or when you wake in the morning with or without food. Although I purchased tablets in Goa I am giving very serious consideration to buying the recommended tablets from here in the UK, and would appreciate your responses.
Just before you sleep is another good alternative.
Also their price please
My wife and I both took them in the morning and while I never experienced any problem (and never have during quite extensive travel in Asia and Africa) my wife says she did feel a bit off and therefore intends to take them at bedtime on our next visit this winter.
The question of not taking them just doesn't come into the equation. Any chance of catching Malaria is not to be messed with - it comes with a lifetime guarantee!

CGJ, very much agree with you, but still surprises me how many people never take them because they haven't had any problems before
