Should I take Doxycycline?

Posted by doobliss on 2/2/2014 at 23:34

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.
