    Many travelers don’t realize their prescribed or over-the-counter medications may be illegal in other countries. As a savvy traveler, it’s important to verify that the medications you will need don’t place you or your health in hot water!

    • Find out what medications legal in the country you will be visiting. The consular country information ( will provide illegal medication information for that region.
    • If your medications are illegal, immediately contact your physician to begin looking for a non-regulated substitute.
    • Take enough extra medication to last 1-2 weeks in case of unforeseen circumstances.
