Best Travel Medications List
Everyone needs the Best Travel Medications List, Travel Medical Supply List, and Travel Medical Supplies Checklist when they go on holiday and travel aboard.
When you are going abroad, some medicines are available at the local pharmacies, and some travel locations don’t have drugstores. Some meds bought abroad are black-market drugs, and you won’t want to buy them from the local drug store when you are traveling. My best advice is to be careful when purchasing drugs when traveling.
Best Travel Medications List
To be prepared for your trip make an appointment with your doctor for a travel consultation. My advice is to see your doctor and ask for the medicines that you normally take and those you may need while you are on your journey. Maybe you will need a sleeping pill for the airplane ride. Perhaps you will need medicine for extreme food poisoning that occurs in the region you are visiting. Your doctor will have recommendations for you and will know what you should bring.
But, what ever you do while you are traveling, don’t take any drugs you are allergic to, or you will get sick and may end up in the hospital. Bring your prescription drugs from home. Take enough of your medications to last the whole trip.
Last but not least, and maybe one of the most importantly drink Water! Please, make sure you don’t get dehydrated. It’s so easy to do while you are running around in the heat. Be careful and stay hydrated. Carry a water bottle with you in your purse or backpack. Just don’t bring it into the museums.
Be Medically Prepared
Here is a General Travel Medical Check List and the Travel Medications I take when traveling alone, traveling aboard or while I am on holiday or vacation. Remember – always check with your doctor.
If you need an EpiPen – bring it with you. Your EpiPen at home won’t help you when you are traveling if it’s not with you. Please keep your EpiPen with you in your backpack or purse.

Then check with your doctor or local pharmacist to get a travel medical kit from them that is perfect for you. Not everyone is the same, so you will need your medicines customized. Schedule with your doctor a “travel check-up” with your doctor but when you go bring this list. That way you can talk about the travel medical supplies you will need.
