  • Mr. Fluegel,

    Thank you for your question and for your interest in military suicide. As you may know, the DoDSER system collects information on only two categories of medications:  psychotropic medications (e.g., antidepressants, sleep medications) and pain medications (e.g., opioids, non-opioids). Accordingly, given that mefloquine, an anti-malarial medication, is not tracked via the DoDSER system, we are not able to determine whether a relationship exists between mefloquine use and suicide rates during combat deployments.  

    Sincerely,

    The DoDSER Team
