1. Larzine contains traditional herbs and quinine, extracted from cinchona tree and manufactured by Hamdard Pharmaceuticals.
2. you have to contact an Unani Hakim to clarify your thoughts but it can be said safely:Medications work differently for different people i.e. some people get great results and some get side effects from medication.

Hi,
Any anti malarial drug may have side effects if taken as self medication as you do not know how and when and how much is the dose and for how many days you have to continue.
So you take as per your doctor's advise.Don't do self medication.

My friend s son is in the hospital fighting for his life with Malaria. We were told of the four types his is the worst one to have. He was in the Peace Core and had gone back to visit his village in Africa and when he came home he was very ill. I do not think he is currently insured which makes things even harder. He went to the hospital and now we are sitting here waiting. What medicines should we get him and who are the leading specialists in the field. His parents and all of his friends are sick with worry and we need to help them be proactive. Please help me!!!!!!!!!! We are petrified.

I am just 80 years old and 14months ago had a stroke consequently I take quite a few medications i.e. Perendopril, Clopidogrel Baclofen, Quinine and Simvastatin I suffer with severe cramps and spasms in my right leg (my right side was affected by the stroke) the cramps etc., affect me more during the night. In the last two weeks I have found unexplained bruising on both breasts and today I have found one on my stomach....is this anything to worry about or could it be side effects of the Statins or any of the other medication. I must add that up to my stroke I was a very active person, ate reasonably healthily rode my bike every day ....consequently I am still a very positive person and am able to manage admittedly with help from family and friends on occasions. I would be grateful if you can shed some light on this situation, thanking you in anticipation. Jean Thatcher
