Is it really wise to subject yourself to the known side affects for that long?
We're heading off next month for the standard trans-Africa over eleven months. Despite explaining that my wife is a total mossie magnet, the tropical desease specialist where we went for our jabs has very very strongly recommended against anti malaria drugs for such a long time.
He prefers to supply us with malaria treatment, with repeated prescription, that we take at the slightest onset of a symptom.
Added to that the copious use of DEET and Permethrin should (apparantly) do the job.
After all, it's better not to get bitten.
