    Hello, I returned from a trip to Africa on August 16th where I took Malarone for 3 weeks, my daughter took it for 2 weeks. Since returning, both of us are noticing significant hair loss. She has been complaining a lot. Today (September 10th) I took a shower and long strands came out in a clump. This has not happened to either of us - ever!

    Hi. I have had several trips abroad over the last 2 years where I have taken malarone for periods of two to four weeks at a time. I had noticed thinning of my hair a year ago but two months ago my hair began coming out particularly after washing it. To date all my blood tests have come back normal. So I am hoping that malarone is the only cause and I will change to something else for my next 5 week trip to Burma and Malaysia in November. I must say I am pretty anxious about my hair continuing to fall out and wonder when or if it will grow again! I've started taking multivitamins as well. Is there anything else I can do, apart from buying a wig!!a

    I am adding my voice to the dialogue. I am a 59 year old female. I travelled to Africa this past January and took Malarone. I experienced a significant loss of hair upon return...which I believe may be related to use of this drug. Am interested in others with similar experience...particularly about whether their hair returned to normal.

    Peggi,
    My husband and I went to India in February and to the Amazon in May. I had to take Malarone for both trips, although since it was off season for both locations, I cut the length of time I was to take it. About a month ago I noticed significant hair loss. I have slightly short hair, and noticed it was simply dropping all day and night. This is really quite a concern. I am 62 and in great health. I am so very happy to have seen your posting. I am researching Malarone and it appears to be the culprit. I too want to know if others had this problem and if it corrects itself.

  • My most severe symptoms would be the shortness of breath, muscle weakness and this chronic pain under my left rib that goes around to my back and up to my shoulder blade. Occasionally that pain will go to my left chest, clavicle and jaw. But all of my pain is on the left side. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis too. Chronic headaches are dizziness are awful and debilitating.

    I am afraid to take Gabapentin. I do not suffer from seizures but I hear people can have a seizure taking this med, is that for real truth or as they say 10% of 36,000.
