Want to go to India with dd (5) sometime in the not too distant future.

Are anti-malarials safe for los?

Some are, some are not. You must get advice from a travel clinic, as different areas require different antimalarials, some of which are ok for kids. It is really important to get the right advice. I have just come back from Cambodia and we had to get the correct A/M for the area, which was in fact suitable for kids, and also, luckily was not dangerous to take when scubadiving.

This is my favourite site for travel advice. Travel Doctor I think you'll find all you need on it, inc children's dosages. Hth.
