TRAVEL AD­VICE

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - NIGEL THOMP­SON, Travel Ed­i­tor BY

TAK­ING your pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tion on hol­i­day can be a mine­field – what is le­gal here may be re­stricted (ie you need a doc­tor’s let­ter) or il­le­gal in an­other coun­try, with the risk of jail.

So plan well ahead: seek ad­vice from your GP or prac­tice nurse at least 10 weeks be­fore you travel.

Also check the drugs rules for your des­ti­na­tion (and any coun­tries you are tran­sit­ing) with the em­bassy – there is a list at the gov.uk site. And never carry them for any­one else.
