"Health" India Packing List Tip by BluBluBlu

India What to Pack: 105 reviews and 43 photos

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Obviously get your jabs before you arrive in India. If you are going to take anti-malaria tablets, buy enough to start your course at home, but buy the rest when you arrive in India as they are a fraction of the cost in say the UK. Other than that I'd buy all other general medical needs once you have arrived...you'll get 100 Paracetamol tablets for the price of 10 at home! If you get an upset stomach its best to let your own system try to sort it out...give it a chance...and only take tablets if it does not get better after 2/3 days. If you do think you are ill there are excellent local Doctors in every town.
