Our expert says:
Plasmoquine is a derivate of quinine, a malaria medication that also has anti-inflammatory and anti-pain properties. They think it works for malaria because it is toxic to the parasite. The reason for breaking the 2 days is that quinine can be toxic to you too and can build up in your body, causing flushed and sweaty skin, ringing of the ears (tinnitus), blurred vision, impaired hearing, confusion, reversible high-frequency hearing loss, headache, abdominal pain, rashes, dizziness, dysphoria (feeling uneasy), nausea and vomiting, and diarrhea.
If you use quinine long term ( months or years) your doctor should do blood tests every now and then to check your blood cells, he should check your heart with an ECG and your hearing if you have any symptoms mentioned above.
