Students currently on medication should notify their doctor as soon as possible that they will be traveling to a different country, as the particular medication may not be available in Spain. In this case, students must either arrange to secure enough medicine for the entire semester/summer prior to departure, or look into alternate medications that are available here. Some students will need to be seen by a doctor in Spain in order to get a prescription for a different medication. Shipping medications to a different country can be difficult, and such packages are often held by customs officials.
