More fun stuff. Today I found out the difference between all of the different types of Malaria pills.
Apparently, they’re pretty expensive and you have to take them a lot. Joy. Which ones are the best to get? How long do we have to take them for? When do we have to start taking them? Well, I think I’ll have to leave these questions to be answered another day.
- Malarone: Must take daily and is very expensive (ie $7-8 per pill)
- Doxocycline: Must take daily and much cheaper ($0.10 per pill). Causes skin to be very sensitive and may also affect birth control pills. That’s no good.
- Methlaquin: Only have to take weekly ($5-6 a pill). Side effect could be nightmares.
