Traveling with asthma

This is what we packed for a short weekend trip to the coast for a family of 5 with allergies and 4 with asthma.
We needed:

  • 3 bottles of Singulair

  • 1 bottle of generic Zyrtec

  • 1 Advair 250 disc

  • 1 Advair 100 disc

  • 1 Advair inhaler

  • 1 box of Albuterol for the nebulizer

  • 1 Albuterol inhaler

  • 1 Peak flow meter

  • 1 tubing kit for the nebulizer

  • 1 BIG box of tissues (not pictured-because it's empty now ....)

You never know when you might need something, it's better to take things with you and not use them than not have something.

Traveling with asthma can be adventure, luckily we were all fine this time. But pack everything you have! Even if you think you may not need it. You don't want to be in another state and not have medication, a trip to the Emergency room can easily cost $2,000.

So, stock up and have fun if you are traveling somewhere this summer. Make a list and check it twice and make sure you have ALL of the medication, spacers, peak flow meters, nebulizer and tubing kits. Make sure you have enough medication for how long you will be gone. It's better to be safe than sorry......
