I haven't seen too much about malaria pills here so I thought this info would be handy. I'm moving to Africa and must take a malaria pill for the next 2 years. According to my doctor, mefloquine, doxycycline, and malarone are all gluten-free (at least when manufactured in the U.S.-- I don't know about other locations). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she got the right info when pharmacists weren't able to help me.

Cheers to being both gluten-free and malaria-free! :)

Be careful not to take doxy and malarone at the same time. Doxy can lower the effectiveness of Malarone.

It's funny he recommended doxycycline ... that's an antibiotic.

The nice thing about Lariam is that it's only once per week while Malarone is once per day. :) But if you have any kind of psych problems, you don't want the Lariam.
