If you are planning a trip overseas and you take medication, you have some pre-planning you need to do. Here are seven basic guidelines to help when planning your trip.
As a good rule of thumb – if in doubt ask your doctor. If still in doubt – contact the Embassy or Consulate of the country/ies you are travelling to.
As a general rule, when we travel, we have the doctor include all potential medication that we carry with us – altitude sickness tablets for our trips at altitude, headache tablets that we can buy in a supermarket as well as any prescription medication we need to carry.
