How to Pack a Travel Med Kit
Maybe you have a first aid kit in your car and don't worry about. Well..., you should. At least check it from time to time, re-stock it and replace expired medications.
I found some very useful tips:
- When you travel abroad and you have a condition which requires you to take medications, make sure to keep them in the bottle you got them in from the pharmacist. Bring a little extra, just in case.
- Carry copies of all your prescriptions as well as proof of medical insurance and contact information for your doctor back home.
- If you can, bring a list of the generic names for your prescriptions, as well as the usual over-the-counter (OTC) medications. It could be helpful to determine what medications you might need.
In case you don't know what all should be in your first aid kit, ask your pharmacist. They should be able to help you out. It is better to be safe then sorry!
