When travelling, we move from our comfort zone in more ways than one – not only are we visiting other places and meeting new people, but we are also exposed to different climates and different microbes and viruses which might take advantage of our lack of immunity to them. But on top of that, for some people, just the experience of travelling can cause certain problems such as motion sickness or jet lag.

Aside from the general information, our travel section offers you information on different medications and a way of obtaining a prescription without wasting time on making a face-to-face appointment with a doctor.
