My Halloween “treat?” Malaria pills
My father said I could wear his old fatigues from Vietnam today. They actually fit, which I think says a lot about the Army rations back then…
Instead, I got into the Halloween spirit by unwrapping something that kind of looks like candy: Mefloquine, an anti-malarial drug. Prescribed by Briarcliff Manor’s own Dr. Gary Lehrman and picked up at Prescription Plus in the Chilmark shopping center. It’s a local story now!
Now, for the scary part – click below if you want to watch me take my first pill.
