Be sure to continue taking your medication at regular intervals as prescribed. Check the time difference at your destination before you travel and adjust your medication time gradually to suit. Talk to your doctor before you travel, if you are unsure.
Carry your prescription medicine and your doctor’s letter with details of your condition in your hand luggage. Keep all medication in the original packaging. Check out any restrictions on the amount of medication that you can carry, before you travel.
Carry your doctor’s prescription with you so that you can replace your medication while travelling. In certain countries, you may need a local doctor’s prescription, so know the generic name of your drug.
If you need to have vaccinations for your destination, ask your doctor if they will affect your medication or your epilepsy.
Avoid too much alcohol and too little sleep.
LOST OR STOLEN MEDICATION
It is recommended that you always take your medication with you. However, if, for any reason it is lost or stolen, please contact the nearest emergency centre.
