Information About Mefloquine You Can Provide To Your Doctor or Medical Professionals

Links to appropriate academic articles.

One of the biggest hurdles facing those with quinism is the current lack of knowledge about it within the medical community at large.

Something that is frequently asked is “what information is there that I can/should provide to my family doctor about quinism?”
