I'm travelling to Canada on Saturday to visit some friends for 2 weeks. My medications are listed below, (and I have been given more to take with me should my symptoms get worse) however I'm having trouble getting a letter from my doctor explaining what they are all for. All the medications are labelled and packaged which I understand is all thats needed. But I'm still worried there may be problems with them letting me take them in once I get to Canada. My symptoms are much improved but not normal and BM's are down to 2/3 mostly formed, a day. On Mon my pred is due to stop, and I also drop down to 1 suppository every 2 days (the Acetarsol). Is it worth me just taking the mesalazine and one of the types of suppositories with me, rather than taking everything else (including extras should I need them) ??
