From this study (2 years ago):
These two drugs were given as prophylaxis for malaria. I was temporarily stationed at Guantanamo NS, with the 190th CES, Jan 2010. After taking taking two combined doses for the drug combination, I lost my equilibrium for approximately 30mins. Where by my equilibrium returned, but I was plagued by continuous ringing of the ears: tinnitus. I was also debilitated by severe headaches, which subsided once the combination of drugs ceased. I have had no reoccurring symptoms of equilibrium loss. The diagnosis was documented in my military medical records and at Tallgrass Immediate Care Center, Topeka, KS.
