    Hi Katycobz,

    Thank you for getting in touch with the helpline.

    I think the Arthritis Care factsheet, Travelling abroad, answers your questions – see page 2, which focuses on medication: https://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/do-i-have-arthritis/publications/1178-travelling-abroad.

    If you would like to talk further, you would be very welcome to call the helpline on 0808 800 4050.

    If you would like to learn more about other people’s experiences of taking medicines abroad, you may wish to post your question in the ‘Living with arthritis’ section of the online community.

    Best wishes,
