If there’s one particularly bad time to come down with an illness, it’s during a stay abroad
To avoid finding yourself in such a situation, you can use our travel prescription service.
Arranged by our certified medical professionals, this part of our travel management program complements our travel counseling and vaccination services
Here are the pre-travel medications that we are regularly called on to prescribe
Traveller’s diarrhea medication
Commonly known as tourista, traveller’s diarrhea occurs as a result of a bacteria, a virus, or sometimes even a parasite.
Although often associated with South America, travellers’ diarrhea also strikes tourists visiting Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
If you’re planning to travel to one or more of these parts of the world, it’s likely that your nurse will recommend an antibiotic or Dukoral®.
Available as an oral vaccine, Dukoral® is administered a few weeks before your departure to allow you to fully enjoy your trip.
Medication to prevent acute mountain sickness
Acute mountain sickness, which can occur during stays at elevated altitudes, may cause symptoms that are severe enough to disrupt the smooth planning of your activities.
Preventive medication is one of the best ways to reduce the impact of the onset of this condition.
However, before prescribing a preventive treatment against mountain sickness, our doctors will ensure that this is appropriate in accordance with your state of health.
