Hi my friend and I are doing a 3 week trip visiting Guatemala, Belize (Caye Caulker for 2 days) and Mexico. We hblets and I have heard that these can have side effects as well so don't want to spendave bought Avloclor (chloroquine) tablets, which were only about £3.50 but I am worried about the side effects which can apparently include "some or complete loss of sight". Has anyone taken these and experienced bad side effects?
I could alternatively get malarone from the doctors but it would be a lot more expensive, about £100 in total for the supply of tablets and while I would happily pay this rather than experience horrible side effects of the other tablets, I have heard that malarone can also have bad side effects.
Can anyone give any advice? Thanks very much
