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.


Anti-malaria medication

Found across Africa and Asia, but also closer to home in South America, malaria can do real damage

Since this infectious disease is transmitted more regularly following a mosquito bite, it is imperative that you take all the necessary precautions to keep them away

In addition, because there are many different strains of malaria, your trip may require you to take more than one medication, such as chloroquine, atovaquone-proguanil, doxycycline and mefloquine.


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.
