OK, we leave on June 9 for Ambergris Caye, myself,and two children aged 13 & 15 years. Our doctors and the local health dept have informed me that although Malaria tablets are not required for entry,they are recommended. Sooo.... I have filled the perscriptions,which we are supposed to start taking a week before departure,( one a week for seven weeks!) However, I have now heard that they can cause unpleasant side affects. This is the last thing we want while traveling,and I'm perplexed as to whether we really need to take them at all? Could someone who has any info on this PLEASE help me? Thanks, Karin.
