Military-backed Anti-Malaria Drug Causes Neurological and Psychiatric Side Effects Leading to Suicides and HomicidesOver the past two decades, many have suffered varying degrees of psychotic experiences, some unbearably horrific, from a brain-damaging neurotoxic drug that's been commonly used for protecting against mosquito-borne malaria infections. The side effects may linger long after one stops taking the drug, because the brain and central nervous system damage has been done. This neurotoxic drug's physiological damage creates psychiatric traumas. But the extreme dangers of mefloquine chloride-formulated Lariam were swept under the rug for most of those years, leaving many victims in medical treatment limbo since mefloquine toxicity data was denied or suppressed throughout most of those two decades. Now the reality of mefloquine is established and better known. Many mefloquine neurologically-damaged victims are finally getting media attention, while more injury lawyers are getting what could become a mefloquine lawsuit feeding frenzy. Military personnel can be ordered to take it over four other CDC recommended malaria prophylactic drugs that could be considered as effective but safer. Increased suicides and homicides among military personnel have been linked to this anti-malaria drug.
