    This medication killed my significant other. Literally. He died of TEN (toxic epidermal necrolysis), after only 3 weekly doses. His doctor failed to take him off it even after he told the dr. he had a skin rash. Be warned.

    It worked for me but it left me with bruised lips, not knowing that I bruise easily.

    Dear All, In 1984, when I was 24, my university sent me to Kenya. At the University Clinic, I remember being told that I had to take Fansidar along with chloroquin. I was staying in Kenya for 3 months and visiting around the interior. I distictively remember in the clinic as I had to sign a long paper from the Manufacturer of Fansidar - Roche. Two nurses witnessed me signing this paper. the paper was saying that I was waiving Roche from being accountable for any side effects I may have. They told me at the clinic that I had no choice but to take this drug or I may die. I did what I was told. I was not warned about any side effects being very dangerous to me at that time. I had blurred vision, and felt vey very off, tired and dizzy on the once a week days I was to take them. These symptoms I am now reading are very dangerous signs. I consider myself one of the lucky ones as I dont think I got damaged but who knows? Whilst there are wonderful things about modern medicine, to me its BEWARE in general. Too much money in this business. I would NEVER TAKE FANSIDAR AGAIN AND RECOMMEND AGAINST IT. TODAY THERE ARE OPTIONS. And by the way, I think I was one of the test cases as the university gave it to me free in the clinic which is not normal protocol. AVOID THIS DRUG, THere are better options now.

    I broke out with an awful rash a few days after taking this drug. My face was puffy and I had tiny bumps and itching on my face and torso for several days.
