...malaria is more deadly than hiv...There is no genuine malaria drug,the best way to prevent yourself from contracting it is by use of mosquito net and clean environment(remove stagnant water)

It is not always true that you must feel drowsy or sleepy after taking catarrh drug, there are catarrh drugs that are non sedating.

My comment is not in any way to water down the fact that fake drugs are in circulation.

That being noted, you might have used the drug wrongly, or you didn't complete the the required dose that should have taken away your catarrh

The underlying mentality of Nigerians shows the people are cursed.....
Fake drugs to make money?
Lets just give Nigerians another 10 years to exterminate themselves by killing each other then foreigners can take over.
Keep killing urselves! Kill urselves with fake drugs, reckless driving, biko haram, patriarchy and associated downfalls like robberies and crimes of men.

Okay. But I used the drug rightly as prescribed by the pharmacist yet my catarrh remained. It has never happened to me before.
