Dear Mr. Bloggs

Thank you for your enquiry regarding a Customised Medical List from the Travel Doctor.

The list of medicines below has been compiled and based on the information that you supplied to us in the questionnaire. We strongly recommend that you make a printed copy of this page NOW, to keep for future reference.

The list of recommended medicines is quite comprehensive and in some instances you may consider the quantity recommended to be excessive. We have based the quantities recommended on a worst case scenario assuming that certain numbers in your group will fall ill during your trip. You will be aware of many more factors relating to your trip than we are, therefore you can increase or decrease any of the quantities as you consider appropriate.

Furthermore, if you are travelling with an organised tour company or chartering a liveaboard dive vessel, they may already have made arrangements for medical requirements etc. You should check this out with the relevant tour company or travel agent and modify the list accordingly.

You will see that we have listed certain medicines from several different categories e.g. pain killers, antihistamines, antibiotics, etc. but if you have used a particular medicine in the past and would prefer to use it again rather than the one we have suggested, please do so. As long as the medicine you choose falls into the same category it makes no difference.

Please note that some medicines such as those containing codeine or similar compounds are not allowed to be taken into certain countries. Please check with your travel agent or airline etc. prior to departure.

The Travel Doctor Manual has been specially written to aid you in the use of these medicines. Please print off a copy and take it with you on your trip, where it will prove very useful should you need to use any of the medicines listed.
