No I haven't, but when I go I will.
I will do whatever is the prevailing medical prevention technique at the time.
Malaria is not the flu. I think you should look at it as a risk vs reward problem. I sail w/ a gal who gets motion sickness in a car. She loves to sail. She takes the prescription level med, plus bands. Sure it makes her a little tired sometimes. Yep, sometimes she isn't 100%. But she once didn't take it and hurled for 8 hrs straight.
This maybe is a bad analogy, but I think appropriate. If the side effects are minimal, and allow you to have a cruise through an area w/ out the potential on set of a serious problem, then I think it's worth it. JMHO.
