Neuropsychiatric side effects of mefloquine

, : Neuropsychiatric side effects of mefloquine. New England Journal of Medicine 322(24): 1752-1753

This letter is from Hoffmann-LaRoche, the manufacturers of mefloquine, in response to an earlier letter in the same journal (ibid., 1989, 321, 1415) describing dizziness, vertigo and dysphoria in 4 of 7 volunteers who took mefloquine (about 15 mg/kg). Registration documents indicate that 24% of patients receiving 750 mg 38% receiving 1000 mg and 96% receiving 1500 mg experience dizziness, and that by splitting the dose the incidence is reduced.

Sarcolipin (SLN) inhibits the cardiac sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase (SERCA2a) by direct binding and is superinhibitory if it binds through phospholamban (PLN). To determine whether overexpression of SLN in the heart might impair cardiac...

The resu...
