Managing medicine in Israel is an important consideration if you are here for a longer stay, whether a tourist, resident, volunteer, or diplomat. You will need to do research before you arrive, as not every medication is the same when traveling to foreign countries.
If you are coming to Israel for a short stay, be sure to bring your medication with you.
For example, common medications may have different names in Israel. Even over the counter medicine can be different. Tylenol or acetaminophen is NOT available in Israel, but Acamol or paracetamol is exactly the same medication.
Understanding the different names and types of medication in Israel is crucial. This is especially true if you have drug allergies. And not every physician will be familiar with American or European medication names.
