ArmySpecial Forces Ordered To Stop Taking Anti-Malarial Drug, Mefloquine, Linked To Brain Damage ...FORTY FUCKING YEARS LATER
[link to www.medicaldaily.com]
he Green Berets and other members of the U.S. Army’s elite commandos will no longer be prescribed the anti-malarial drug, mefloquine, which has been linked to permanent brain damage in the past.

The decision from the Special Forces’ top physician comes less than two months after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) slapped its “black box” warning — the agency’s strongest precautionary label — onto the drug.

Originally developed by Army doctors in the 1970s, mefloquine was the first line of defense against the mosquito-borne disease for decades. Millions of travelers along with military men have taken the drug to prevent malaria, a disease which still kills 660,000 people annually, according to the World Health Organization.

The FDA toughened its warning for the drug due to a slate of neurological side effects that have been connected to its use. These include dizziness, loss of balance, and ringing in the ears, as well as psychiatric symptoms like anxiety, depression, and hallucinations.

“Neurologic side effects can occur at any time during drug use, and can last for months to years after the drug is stopped or can be permanent,” the FDA wrote in its July 29 announcement.

The article puts it mildly- how about a complete psychotic break lasting months? How about a screaming horrorshow of an acid trip you can't stop for 6 or 8 months? People have committed suicide because they completely went mad and couldn't take it anymore. This "medication" should never have been put in people.
