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 (www.state.gov) 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.
