    If you (royal you) are concerned about the long-term safety of anti-malarials (especially chloroquine and mefloquine), I suggest taking a look at studies on rheumatoid arthritis.

    Chloroquine in particular is used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, and usually at much higher doses for longer periods of time. For example, rather than once a week as a malaria prophylactic, I have to take two to four a DAY, and I have for the past four years.

    (Side note: you think the nightmares are bad when you take it for malaria… I’m pretty sure I haven’t slept in four years…)
