A medicine passport is not required but is highly recommended. It is a paper chart that lists your name, your medication, your allergies and hypersensitivities in English. Of the drugs, not only the brand name is listed, but also the substance name. In foreign countries, this allows you to easily get help at a doctor's office, pharmacy or hospital. It is also helpful at customs to indicate that your medication was prescribed to you. You can pick up your medication passport at your pharmacy. It is usually provided free of charge. In our Bookstyle bag, there is a convenient pocket for your medication passport, which allows it to be kept and viewed with the medication at all times.
