If you have an established diagnosis of ADHD from a Clinical Psychiatrist you may be eligible for referral to the College Psychiatrist for ongoing treatment and management.

Research the medication regulations of the country you are traveling to: Each country has its own regulations on medications, and some medications that are legal in your home country may not be licensed or allowed in the country you are traveling to, therefore, it is important to research the medication regulations of your destination country in advance.
Check with your doctor or pharmacist: Before traveling to a new country, it is recommended that you consult with your doctor or pharmacist to discuss any medications you are taking and whether they are licensed in the destination country. Your doctor or pharmacist can advise you on how to manage your medications while abroad, including obtaining new prescriptions if necessary.
Carry a copy of your prescriptions: When traveling with medications, it is important to carry a copy of your prescriptions in case you need to refill your medications or if you are questioned by customs or immigration officials.
Consider alternative medications: If a medication you are taking is not licensed in the country you are traveling to, you may need to consider alternative medications that are licensed in that country. Your doctor or pharmacist can help you identify suitable alternatives.
