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!!!
