Medication To Take With You On Holiday

Summer is fast-approaching, and with things opening up again after the global pandemic of the last couple of years, people are looking forward to going abroad on holiday. After what has gone on over the last couple of years, many of us could do with a relaxing holiday in the sun to help us forget what has happened. It is never too early to start planning your trip, and you will want to ensure you take everything with you that you may need while abroad, including medication. Below are some things you may want to consider packing in your suitcase to ensure you have everything you need, no matter what happens to you.


Whether you are married, in a couple, or single and looking to mingle, you will want to ensure that you take contraception with you. It can significantly affect your life when you have a few drinks and have unprotected sex, and you become pregnant, whether in a relationship or not. If you usually take the pill and are not in a relationship, this is not enough, and you will need to ensure you have a supply of condoms. It is always best to err on the side of caution, so if you are in a relationship and you do not want another addition to your family at present, you may also want to take precautions.

Delaying Your Menstrual Cycle

If there is a high chance that you may have your menstrual cycle while you are away on holiday and enjoying yourself in the sun, you may wish to take some norethisterone tablets from Chemist Click. These tablets can delay your period, so you do not have to worry about it while enjoying yourself on holiday. You can still enjoy swimming and other activities, and you will also not have to worry about your hormone levels, so you will be free to enjoy yourself while on holiday.

Regular Medication

If you take medication regularly for whatever medical condition, you will need to ensure you have an adequate supply while you are away. Ensure that you check how much you have before going away, and if need be, speak to your doctor and get another prescription for the medication you will need. It is always better to be safe than sorry, so stock up on the supplies you need so you do not run out.

Tummy Troubles

No matter where you go in the world, a common complaint of many tourists is having a dodgy tummy, usually from the water or something they have eaten. You will want to ensure that you have something to help you deal with this, and Imodium is common in many travellers’ suitcases. It can help stop you from going to the toilet constantly and save you from spending most of your holiday on the toilet. You may want to get some carbon tablets to help with this, and it is also a good idea to have electrolytes in your suitcase to help replenish the fluid levels in your body and prevent dehydration.

Whatever medication you take on holiday with you, always check that it is legal to use in the country you will stay in and any country you transit through. Otherwise, you could find yourself in lots of trouble when going through customs checks.
