"Bring your own over the counter meds!" Malaysia Packing List Tip by Robin922

Malaysia What to Pack: 52 reviews and 29 photos

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Something as simple as a normal cold, can be a disaster here! Any medicine that may cause drowsiness requires a prescription. Only the weakest of cough medicines can be bought over the counter.

Aspirin also can be hard to find and is expensive.

A little box of cold medicine/allergy medicine and a travel packet of aspirin could save you a lot of misery.

As the saying goes... Been there, Done that.
