Nice to meet you

Good afternoon Dr.
I do not know They were in a bag with the dosage written on them
Were they the same both time?
No, The second ones were bigger
ok were they 3 days also?
Yes, just 3 tablets once per day
You likely contracted a resistant strain of malaria
probably m. falciparum
Sometimes this can take several courses to eradicate
What should I do now?
I think you have to wait and see
if this new drug knocks it out
OK Many thanks
it might take a few days to feel better
