I was given this medication upon deploying to the Middle East after 9/11. I took it weekly for a year while in country and another month after returning home. The worst side effects were the strange, vivid dreams that upon waking left me unable to realize the difference between the dream and reality. This was nothing compared to nightmares from PTSD. The side effects were worth it and a mild nuisance compared to contracting malaria. A proper risk/benefit analysis should be used to make a decision on the use of this medication but I will take it agin if I ever have to travel to area where malaria is found.

I have taken the medication as needed since 1989 without issue. I have not had malaria. I acknowledge that some of my friends have had issues.

An extremely dangerous drug. Caused severe anxiety and depression to the point of becoming suicidal (of which I previously had no history). Terrible dreams, night sweats, nausea, etc. This drug is psychological poison.
