Why do you have to bring medicine boxes and first aid kits while on vacation?
You don't need to carry too much first aid supplies and drugs over the holidays. Just bring it enough. For example, two tablets for each type of drug. However, also adjust the duration and destination of your vacation.
If your doctor has prescribed you certain medicines such as antibiotics, diabetes medications, hypertension drugs, you certainly have to bring them all because the medicine must be taken regularly until it runs out. Whereas if you have special conditions such as epilepsy and heart disease, consult your doctor first how many drugs need to be taken and whether the dose needs to be adjusted again.
Tips for packing medicines for vacation
In order not to bother carrying lots of drugs, just transfer the over-the-counter medicines to a small medicine box that can be closed tightly. However, do not forget to label it so that you do not forget which painkillers are and which ones are stomach ulcers for example.
For prescription drugs, it's best to bring along the original packaging provided by the pharmacist. If possible, bring along a copy of the prescription from the doctor. You can request this copy before leaving for vacation.
Medications, especially those prescribed by doctors, should be stored in a bag that you carry everyday. Whereas you can put a first aid kit into a suitcase or suitcase.
If you want to travel abroad, check with the embassy whether you can bring the medicines you are taking. Because, some countries prohibit you from carrying certain drugs.
