Medical Precautions For Travelers

If you’re thinking about traveling this summer, make sure you’re planning ahead for the unexpected. Even the best planned trip can be ruined by a surprise medical crisis.

Here are a few points to consider:

1. Remember Prescription Medications.

  • Bring your important prescriptions with you.
  • Bring enough for a few extra days.
  • Write down what you are taking or get a print out from your pharmacy.
  • Always carry some amount of your prescription in a carry-on bag.

2. Over-The-Counter Medications

  • If you’re traveling abroad, you may not find your favorites in other countries, so bring your own.
  • Make sure not to carry liquids in bottles larger than 3 ounces.

3. Medical Information

  • Bring the name of your doctor and their contact info with you.
  • Make sure you have a list of any drug allergies that you might have.

4. Travel Insurance

  • Be sure to check the details, as some travel health policies only cover what your primary health insurance will not pay.
