Malaria meds

Had a little dessert after my chicken Rogan Josh tonight, my first of four test drive Malarone pills. The meds came with a 3-page disclaimer on how the pills cause dizziness, diarrhea, headache, weakness, mouth sores, coughing, loss of appetite, upset tummy, etc. But the kicker was the note “if you vomit within one hour of taking the pill, take another”. Goes without saying that seemed a little counter-intuitive.

I hope I don’t get sick, for a few different reasons: It’s not my favorite thing, I won’t want to take pill #2 if pill #1 came back up, and I really liked the Rogan Josh and don’t want to hate it for the rest of my life because Malarone caused it to be rejected.

Ah, the joys of travel.
