Hi, I am in Goa and so far have not been bitten by anything. I am taking anti malaria tablets which I do not like. My question is this. If I do not receive any bites do I need to complete the course when I get home?
It is always better to complete the course of anti-malarials, just in case you actually did get bitten but just did not notice it. However, in some cases, the side-effects of anti-malarials can be uncomfortable and unpleasant, so I understand your dilemma. Just remember that there is always a risk of contracting malaria if you stop your anti-malarials early.
