Carry ARV Drugs When Traveling Away?
want to ask, if people with ARV therapy if you want to go out of the city or even out of the country on a plane, bring ARV drugs in question or not yes at the airport carrying the drug?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
ARV (anti-retroviral) is a term for drugs consumed by people with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). Indeed, so far the HIV virus has not been cured. However, regular consumption of antiretroviral drugs is known to suppress the replication of the HIV virus in the body, while at the same time preventing dangerous complications and extending the life expectancy of HIV sufferers themselves.
In connection with your question, carrying several types of drugs (especially those not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs) when traveling, especially by plane, does have special regulations. However, whether these drugs will be questioned later during an inspection at the airport, or not, it is more appropriate if you consult this matter directly with the local airport authority, because each country, airport, and institution would have different policies. In general, to prevent obstacles to carrying ARVs while traveling, we recommend that you ask for a certificate from your doctor or internist who treats you for your current status of treatment.
Hope this helps ...
