New Press Report on Another Mefloquine Victim

Adam Kuligowski says his son and soldiers in his unit were never told about the side effects of the antimalaria drug, Mefloquine. It was issued to Adam and troops like Aspirin in a doggie bag as they boarded the plane to Afghanistan. All of them were told they would be punished if they neglected to take the prescription. U.S. Army NCOs were not told about adverse effects of Mefloquine so they didn’t recognize clear signs of trouble prior to his suicide. Father says no one is listening and whole companies of troops are still being issued to Mefloquine as they are deployed to Afghanistan now.
Father talks about his son’s struggles with adverse effects of Mefloquine received while on active duty.
