Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Shana
A first aid kit is always a good idea for travel. You never know when you will get blisters, cuts, scrapes or other minor injuries and a trip to the infirmary is $100 + just for to put a band-aid and anti-sceptic on a boo boo. Basic OTC medications for headache, diarrhea, cold or allergies are also a good idea.

In regard to what prescription medications you should take; that is a question only your doctor should answer.
