Travel & Off-Grid
Often it’s incredibly difficult while traveling to secure refills of your crucial medications, or even to get a backup supply before you leave. Did you know your doctor back home can’t prescribe medication for you if you’re traveling out-of-state?
And we all know that getting medical care overseas can be confusing and difficult. Our founder experienced this for himself when refilling a parent’s crucial medication suddenly became much more difficult when traveling in Puerto Rico, even though it’s a US territory. What the pharmacy would refill immediately in the States, in Puerto Rico they required a local doctor’s Rx that was less than 48 hours old.
If you’re camping or hiking way off-grid, and a simple bite, cut or scrape gets infected, having medication on hand can mean the difference between cutting your vacation short or not, and depending on how far you are from a hospital or clinic, between life and death.
