Ever been at a loss at what medication to take along when touring overseas? Here’s a guideline.
When travelling overseas you have to make provision for the things that occur most commonly like nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, travel sickness, insomnia (especially on the plane), headaches, flu, muscle pains, fever and normal blisters, and cuts and bruises.
Here’s a list of medicines and ointments to take along. We do not suggest that other medication are inferior.
Cuts and bruises => Bactroban® or Betadine® ointment
Diarrhoea => Kantrexil®
Fever blisters => Zovirax® ointment
Flu => Flusin® effervescent or Coryx® and maybe a cough syrup
Headaches => Panado®, Suncodin® or Stopayne®
Insomnia => Stilnox® or Imovane®
Muscle pains => Myprodol®
Nausea & vomiting => Valoid®, Stemitel® or Maxolon®
Normal blisters => Moleskin® or other tough and thin plaster
Travel sickness => Valoid® or Scopaderm TTS®
You can add some gauze and a roll or two of crepe bandage to this and you should be okay.
Enjoy your trip!
