Associations Between Use of Anti-malarial Medications and Health Among U.S. Veterans of the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan

thanks to Gerry Nye
VA’s Post Deployment Health Services (PDHS) Epidemiology Program researched the link between past use of anti-malarial medications, including mefloquine, and self-reported physical and mental health conditions among recent Veterans. They found that combat and deployment may negatively influence physical and mental health more than the use of antimalarial medications.
Researchers used data from 19,487 participants in the National Health Study for a New Generation of US Veterans, a large-scale study of OEF/OIF era Veterans.
