Get Prescriptions in Order

3 of 12

Bring prescription medications in your carry-on luggage, as well as copies of all prescriptions,
including generic names for the same. Pack a note from your prescribing physician regarding
controlled and intravenous substances. Check with the Department of State or American Embassy to ensure that your medication is permitted
into the country you’ll be visiting. For travel in remote areas where health clinics are
questionable or few and far between, consider asking your doctor for sterilized syringes as
well.
