Altitude sickness
The higher you go, the more scarce oxygen becomes, and sometimes the body experiences difficulty acclimating to this lack of oxygen. Depending on the ascent rate and the anticipated altitude, acute mountain sickness (AMS) or altitude sickness symptoms can be felt. Based on your next trip's destination and the condition of your health, your pharmacist can provide valuable advice to facilitate your acclimatization at high altitude and prescribe, if conditions allow, a treatment to prevent the discomfort associated with AMS.
You must already have received a prescription for this condition within the past 2 years. If the prescription comes from another pharmacy, make sure you have proof of your prescription (ex.: the prescription label).
