Catheters while travelling

Hi, I'm new here. Not new to MS, about 25 years in. I'm Australian and we (husband and I) are going to be in the states for a few weeks. We'll be in new hampshire, near Lebanon, for a month and I'll need to buy intermittant catheters. Could someone suggest where I could purchase a bunch online whilst there? When I travel I like to take the opportunity to visit with a peer support group, have coffee, chat a laugh. we'll be a week in New York, week Washington, month New Hampshire. Cheers

I replied last night and must of forgot to hit the submit button. MSAA helpline may be able to direct you on what you need to bring and where to pick up your supplies tel:(800) 532-7667. Sure hope you have a wonderful visit to the USA 🇺🇸 😊 Bring warmer clothes, it’s been cold in the northeast. Hope this helps.

Thanks. We will. It would have been lovely to catch up for coffee. In the past, out of oz flights always cinnected through california, but now more go through texas. If you ever get downunder, let me know!

I believe you will have to have a prescription to get Catheters here in the USA. It might be better for you to send them ahead to where you will be staying. or contact MSAA as CalfeeChick noted. tele +1 800 532 7667 [copied from CalfeeChick].

I'm on the west coast in California, too far for coffee or tea. Enjoy your stay

I'm quite a bit north, near Sacramento. It's interesting, I have only met 2 others locally that have MS.
