Is there a good alternative to standard antimalarial medication?
I visited Ghana for the first time last year and had the most memorable trip of my life. For various reasons I want to go back soon, but I have a little problem that I hope you can assist me with, medication! I am not in favour of taking medication in any form and my experience with the tablets I took as a precaution against malaria was disastrous - I was constipated for most of my trip. Do you have an alternative? I heard about citronella soap but I guess that is not enough protection. Please advise as I would like to return to that beautiful country soon.
