|Subject: Re: India/Bhutan - anti-malaria med and altitude med|
Hi Pam and other Ziners:
My Kaiser people recommended I take Mafloquine 250 mg which I had used for other trips. And thanks for reminding me; I take the last pill tomorrow. I think they were more concerned about the Bangladesh-India (Sikkim) portion of the trip than Bhutan.
Did not do the altitude pills on this trip. And while I was a bit short of breath on some of the hikes, not a big deal. I did use Diamox several years ago when in Tibet and would recommend if you get there, use the meds!
You can always check with your tour people!
Enjoy! jo in cloudy Sunnyvale, south of SF!
