We recently posted an excellent article providing advice and guidance to students who are traveling with medication. Below is a short excerpt from this post:
While most countries will have medication to treat minor symptoms like aches and pains, it is likely that the name of the medication will be different than what you are used to, the language may be different or the dosage might be different. Traveling with medication will save you the time and the trouble of trying to find the right medication when you really need to have it. Here are some over-the-counter medications that you should think of bring on your trip:
- For digestive issues – especially if you are traveling to a country that serves food you are not used to, if you are prone to indigestion or if you are traveling to country where food hygiene is low, you’ll want to bring anti-diarrheal, antacid and laxative
- For colds, fever and pain, decongestant, pain killer/fever reducer such as ibuprofen and cough drops
