    TRAVEL MEDICINES on the GO

    One frequent question that we deal in the pharmacy is what medication should one be taking while traveling. Here we listed the top ones that we recommend.

    1.Probiotics

    Probiotics are really useful in preparing your gut in an incidence you may encounter overseas. Taking probiotics is the easiest way to strengthen the immune system in the gut. If you’re going Asia or any country that you are not used to the food that you’re regularly eating here, we always recommend probiotics that are shelf-safe and that it will not lose its potency while on a trip.

    2.Anti-Diarrhoea Tablets

     

    This medication is a MUST MEDICINE to take with you and it can be used with Probiotics. Hand in hand with the anti-diarrhoea medication, make sure that you travel with some electrolytes. This is to prevent dehydration and to ensure that you are properly hydrated especially when going to a tropical country. And if you have a bout of diarrhoea, you will be able to manage that quickly with the help of electrolytes.

    3.Hand Sanitisers

    These are little alcohol-based ones that you can use to clean your hands. It’s a handy way of sanitising hands without the need of water. There is the whole host of essential medicines that you should stuff in your first aid kit. Cold and flu tablets, anti-allergy medications, and anti-allergy creams are the ones to include in the list. It is best for you to ask one of our pharmacists to recommend the right travel medicines to take with you.
