I am travelling to India, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam....
I have been advised to take antibiotics, travellers diahorrea medicine, etc etc and i am very confused about which type, what to take etc...
If anyone can help with this i would be extremely grateful.
what about immodium? i always hear my friends wanting that, i normally go the natural route and fight it off lol (i dont like taking tylenols for headaches even!)
Immodium goes without saying!! espec in India ha ha - no, im talkin about antibotics and other medications for precautions
Does anyone know what is and isnt allowed into India medication wise?
my freinds mum is a doc and she prescribes me CODEINE PHOSPHATE for when u get the shits (gonna happen!!!) see ur doc about it. and i have antibiotics but seriously they are a LAST RESORT and much easier just to go to the doctors. id take iodene (for washing out cuts, just rub it on with some cotton wool or sumthing) and just a basic medical kit. and also insect repellant maybe, and sunblock.
JUSt go see you GP and theyll give u loads of advice cos they have access to the big medical database thing... good luck!!!
