The international setting can be stressful and aggravate some conditions; therefore, students are advised not to go off medications in anticipation of being abroad. If you are taking prescriptions, you will need to work with your physician to obtain a supply that will last throughout your program. These will need to travel in your suitcase in the original packaging. In addition, please be aware that some drugs that are available in the United States are illegal in other countries.
