I seldom will bring the medicine when we are in travel. But occasionally I still bring the medicine like Antidiarrheal in case we eat something wrong during the travel. Or I will bring some medicine to deal with the cold. And you?

When I volunteered to another country, I brought some medicines with the clearance from the organization's doctor. I think it is better to have it especially if we are traveling to unfamiliar places.

i think it's better to bring a few that you know are effective for you because they might not be available where you go. those with allergies and medical conditions of course have to take more.

I don't often have allergies and therefore I don't bring this kind of medicine.

It's wise to take basic medicine with you and, of course, the medicine you have to take regularly. You wouldn't want to lose time finding a pharmacy in a foreign country whose language you don't speak, would you?

You are right. But sometimes the problem is the custom may need you to provide some certification for the medicines you bring.

@youless You can certainly get this from your physician.

@MALUSE Another problem is whether the foreign custom can understand your language

it depends on where I am going. But if I am going somewhere for a distance, I will bring pain killers, and maybe allergy medication just in case.

While on foreign travel we are advised to carry medicines as getting medicines off the counter is not allowed there. We need a prescription and doctors there are very expensive.

Even though, we still have to bring the medicines carefully when we travel abroad because some of the medicines are not known there.

Yes, I have to. Two of my kids have severe allergies and one has asthma. So I need to pack their medicines and things they might need.

I live with the thought process of better to be safe than sorry. I do take my medicines with me when I travel which is very seldom.

It is essential to have a medical kit with you while traveling. The following things are important. Like Band-aids, stomach pill, pills for headache etc.
