Primarily, fatigue: If the patient has existing mental health issues, they may be worse when feeling ill. The treatments may have side effects that include such symptoms and the distress, fear, disappointment of being so ill can too. As far as I've heard - Malaria does not bring on any serious psychiatric illness in an otherwise mentally healthy person. Best!
