Your doctor will answer all your questions and concerns.
This visit will allow you to:
In case of a chronic illness or complicated previous medical history, ask your doctor to write a medical report, preferably in English, that summarises your situation (background, description of your illness, past cases, results of recent tests, etc.) and mentions your usual treatment.
Never deviate from your usual treatment, not even in the airplane. Always have it with you and take along a duplicate of your prescription specifying the international name of each of your medications: the DCI (common international name). For example, the DCI of aspirin is acetylsalicylic acid. This way you can replace it or quickly find its equivalent wherever you are.
Don’t hesitate to speak with your pharmacist about your travel plans when you purchase your prescribed medication. He’ll recommend useful products, such as mosquito repellent, sun care creams that are right for your skin type and your destination, etc. He will also warn you about possible side effects of the medication or its incompatibilities.
