Water cooler chat: Remember your meds!

Many of us take one type of medicine or another, so make sure that you take more medicine with you than you think you will need while traveling in case of travel delays or other mishaps. Also, make sure you write down the name of the medication, the dosage, the doctor who prescribed it, and then put it in a safe place so you have it on hand in case of an emergency.

If you plan to travel across time zones, especially if it's more than a three hour time change it is a good idea to check with your pharmacist or doctor about when to properly take your medicine. You don't want to interrupt your dosage. If you plan to fly, always carry your medicine with you. Never put it in your luggage, it may get lost.
