Is there any way to reduce my risk of a serious medication mistake while I’m on vacation?

You’re right to worry about a medication mistake when you’re going out of town. Not only are these accidents more likely to happen when you’re out of town than when you’re at home, but they also occur when you are far away from your own doctors and family. In a situation like this, a simple mistake can easily have life-threatening consequences. 

Here are just a few ways people have experienced prescription mistakes while on vacation:

  • One vial, several meds. People want to travel light, and that includes medications. Rather than packing all medications in their labeled containers, some people will combine six or seven different drugs in one container, which is especially troublesome if any of the medications look alike.
  • Taking others’ medications.Many people think nothing of accepting a headache remedy or antacid when a friend offers it, but these good intentions can have serious consequences. Many pills look alike, and a friend could easily hand you a blood pressure medication instead of a painkiller.
  • Out-of-town pharmacies. Having a pharmacist and staff that know you is a big advantage in avoiding prescription drug errors. But when you need a refill on the go, the pharmacy in another state—or even a few cities away—is more likely to make a mistake if they are unaware of your medical history.
