Are you a veteran who has served in Somalia, Iraq, or Afghanistan? If the answer to that question is yes, then you may be experiencing symptoms caused by the anti-malaria drug Mefloquine (Lariam). Long term symptoms such as vertigo, sleep disturbance, problems with equilibrium, and persistent changes in personality or mood may be caused because of exposure to Mefloquine. Many may be confusing these symptoms with those which are commonly associated with Post Traumatic Stress.
Join the Voice of Warriors or VOW Talk Radio on Tuesday, November 27 at 7:00 pm EST for a discussion about Mefloquine. You can call to speak to the host at (424) 258-9240.
