Paludrine for Malaria?

Posted by diliev on 25/6/2012 at 10:58

Hi Folks,

I am going to Thailand, Cambodia(Angkor Wat and Phnom Pehn) and Vietnam (Saigon, Mekong river)

I decided to take Paludrine (I think another name is Proguanil) for Malaria precautions. Does anyone have any feedback about it?

Some websites state it is less effective (~70% effectiveness) than Malarone (~95% effectiveness).

Is there any restrictions in terms of how many tablets I can carry with me?
