Thank you Jock & Di for the heads up. This is all very very worrying and thank you so much for getting back to the travelling community to share this information. It will be useful to many people, even though it does not help you in this instance.

Having read your links I wonder why this drug is still prescribed, especially to someone who may have shown indications of depression.

I guess Big Pharma (Roche) has not been sued to a great extent yet, although there have been cases. When the cost of compensation exceeds their ROI then they will cease production. No warnings of adverse side-effects were even included in packaging until approx 2004

Yes, that's always the case. But its shareholder, Novartis, and its own predecessor, Sandoz, have been. Wishing you all the very best.

It's quite possible. John Booker mentioned that Ryan was not sleeping much in the days before his disappearance. Was John also taking Larium, did they take them on the same day of the week, and did he notice Ryan's behavior change soon after taking said medication? That's something to look into (and, of course, we don't need to know any available details, just thinking out loud).

Meanwhile there was a very good Canadian documentary on the issue back and around that time. I can't find a video link but there is a transcript link, the case studies might be worthwhile to compare with Ryan's last known feelings, mental state .... here:

Shocking!

Here in Germany these side affects were well known and mentioned in the packaging, that's why I insisted in getting another med (Malarone) as stand-by medication (didn't take prophylaxis) in 2004.

I knew several cases of psychological side affects with Lariam from friends, so I was never keen to take it.

Your post is a reminder that we always need to put things in perspective, the little things that bother us daily are mere irritants compared to your daily torment, I hope you get through today without too much pain, though tomorrow won't be easier.

Is this a cause of "India Syndrome?
People have managed to acquire India Syndrome quite easily without any pharma. Knew a family that was posted to Bihar for a year without the least aptitude (they brought blenders and aluminum foil) and they had to be "sacked" by a consular officer and sent back. An English researcher did the same under stress. E. M. Forster described it best, life happens as does Jerusalem Syndrome..
