    I would not travel without Immodium. I needed it on my last 2 trips. I also took anti-nauseants for the ferry from the UK to France.

    I am going to the Dr. to get a prescription for Diahorrea Tabs, Vommit Tabs and a general Anti-biotic… My Dr. recommended to do this, because then you are prepared for any situation. Make sure you also take any other meds you might need, like antihistamines, ventolin/preventative asthma meds, and other day to day meds to because you wont be able to see a Dr. very easily and without a script you wont have access to those meds either.

    Better to be safe than sorry. Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> There would be nothing worse than spending several thousand on a holiday and be sick and not enjoy it.
