Thank you very much for your helpful comments, especially your's Dan. Gary, you may want to view Dan's comments on this matter and think about carrying an emergency supply in a foreign country that is not up to the level of the U.S. in medicine. But thank you for your cautious comments. I truly know what you mean, but there are situations where you can't have a doctor, or the medical practice is inferior and can even be dangerous in a foreign country. It was last year on 60 minutes where Russian doctors had to come to the U.S. to be trained on administering antibiotic for tuburculosis in the Russian prison system where a very high percentage of inmates have very resistant TB from poor administering by the Doctors. They were learning how not to administer in such a manner so as to produce a still more powerful resistant strain. Although Ukraine and Russia are two different countries, I am not sure about the level of their expertise in the medical arena. I consult the Physician's Desk Reference myself and talk to a doctor.
