Malaria medication for Vietnam and Cambodia

Jump to last reply

I am leaving in a few days for 10 days in Vietnam and Cambodia. I have a prescription for Malaria medication, specifically Malarone. I have not had it filled yet because I have a number of friends who said they took no medication and advise me to skip it to avoid the side effects. We will mostly be in cities in Vietnam (Ho chi Minh and Hanoi) and in Angkor Watt in Cambodia.
I am nervous about the risk of Malaria but also pretty nervous about my sensitivity to medication. I need to decide by tommorrow so I can get a prescription filled and start taking it!
Thanks,
