- Tell your doctor. It’s wise to seek advice from your healthcare professional before setting off on holiday.
- If you currently take any medications or supplements, keep them with you when you travel. Take extra doses with you, and be sure to pack them in your carry-on baggage. Should your baggage go missing, you’ll at least have your medications and supplements with you.
- Be prepared for a medical emergency. Take a list of any medications and supplements you may use in case you lose them. Your healthcare professional may be able to suggest a local physician to contact if needed.
- Take some time to research the country you are visiting to ensure they have the medical support you would need in the event of an emergency.
- If you have an accident, fall, injure yourself or need emergency surgery, your healthcare team needs to know that you are on a blood thinner.
- Driving is possible but if you feel unwell while doing so, you should pull over and seek medical attention.
