Hi, I don't really know where to put this so I hope this is the right forum...

I started taking larium on wednesday and I was stupid and didn't read the instructions. I thought I had to take it every day instead of once a week so I took another dose last night. Now i'm feeling really dizzy and light headed. Is this a serious side effect? Will I be ok without getting any medical help?

I would really appreciate any information on this.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Lariam is antimalarial and up to 1250 mg once dosage can be tried. Get evaluated for any side effects, these symptoms will subside once the drug is out of your system.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
