Travel Medicines

“Traveling is the best medicine for the soul, but do not forget to grab something for the body.”

- Unknown

During a journey, we may encounter various ailments, such as a headache, sore throat and stomach. Most active travellers often complain of muscle pain, back and neck pain. Therefore, medicines are an integral part of our journey. Properly selected medications can save your health and make your trip unforgettable.


  First of all, you have a checkup and talk to your GP. Find out which vaccinations need to be done before going abroad. If you have some kind of chronic illnesses, such as asthma and diabetes, discuss with your doctor the possibility of purchasing more medications that are necessary for the trip. Do not forget to take a letter from your GP about what prescribed medications you will carry with you and their specific purposes.

The most important element in preparing for a trip is a vaccination against diseases that you can get in another country. You should understand that some dangerous diseases do not respond to treatment and can cause serious complications. Talk to your doctor about proper vaccination. Visit the International Travel Vaccination Centre to find more information.

  Secondly, you need to make it clear if you have any allergies. Write it on a small card and put it in your wallet. In a case of emergency, you can avoid anaphylactic shock caused by medical drugs, such as antibiotics.
