Sorry, me again...
Going to America on the 15th, yay! Just about to sort travel insurance which I asked about before in another thread, lots of helpful answers so thanks.
Just a couple of questions:
*I've looked up what I need on AUK site, NHS choices, airline site etc and it seems to be:
-Take meds in original boxes and in hand luggage.
-Take prescription in case you lose anything and need to get more.
-Travel insurance documents.
-Also said on airline website that I'd need letter from dr saying that they'd prescribed meds and what for. As it's the airline saying this perhaps I'd better but seems overkill if I have prescriptions and the boxes...do others on here generally get one of these? I feel like I'm always pestering my surgery for something and don't want to if it's unnecessary.
Am I missing anything here?
Also: I'm travelling to the East Coast so will gain 5 hrs on the way and lose 5 on the way back. How does it work with taking medication - is it best to take it at the time you would have done at home ie if body says it's 11pm take even though local time is 6pm? Or to adapt to the new time straightaway?
Think this is it - not really so worried about the asthma kicking off esp. as it seems better than usual atm (plus I've travelled recently in Europe and it was worse, unpleasant but manageable), more about security etc and possible bureaucratic hurdles. Any advice about travelling with asthma in general, or to America specifically, welcomed though I know as I'm not severe some won't apply like fitness to fly - unlikely to be a problem unless I do laps round the departure lounge with my suitcase spraying deodorant lol.
Thanks - sorry for a long post!
