My late father was in Ferramonti di Tarsia Italian concentration camp in Calabria from 1940-43. Because of the prevalence of malaria in that region, the internees were given quinine tablets to be taken 3 times a day, My father wrote of the side effects of this drug which he called Atebrin in his book about living conditions in the camp. One of the side effects was nausea and dizziness. My father lost his hearing in one ear which he attributed to the quinine. Maybe this was an overdose if taken in such large quantities for so long.
