U.S. Military Finally Looks Into Disaster Malaria Drug

After months of questions from veterans groups and members of Congress, the Pentagon announced last week it would finally set up a panel of experts to review an anti-malaria pill dispensed weekly to troops in Iraq. The drug, Lariam, was developed by the U.S. Army in the 1970s and approved for use in the United States in 1989. I first posted the concerns about Lariam in 2002. The military will want to use this panel to disprove the tons of scientific evidence that Lariam is fraught with problems. Quite tragic to rely on expensive medications with loads of dangerous side effects when much simpler and effective remedies for malaria are readily available.
