    Dear Travelfish:
    I will be travelling to Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and (flying out of) Singapore for three months.
    I have the full amount of pills I need for the trip (80% of the price was covered by my health plan).
    I am planning on buying a mosquito net and sleeping bag liner on arrival in Phnom Penh as well as applying mosquito repellent and being cautious.
    I am asking because I am unsure how my body will react to three months + 28 days of Doxycycline and Dengue fever is a much more serious issue from what I have read.
    My plan for now is to just ditch the Doxycycline and just be extra aware.
    Any advice/insight is appreciated.
