Hello
I got bed bug on the French way recently from ponferrada. The lady st the albergue sprayed my bag but my pills were in there. One set were in plastic bags so they’re most likely fine so I’ll continue taking them. Another we’re in a plastic pop open bottle and I hope are fine but will probably still take them. The last was in a ziplock bag that was unzipped so I’m sure fumes of the pemetherin or whatever she used to spray them got on. They were near the top so they definitely got sprayed. Is it okay to take them? They kind of smell like the stuff. How toxic is it to humans?

I would not take this pills anymore. What kills the pest is usually also poisonous to man. I can only speak of the "baygon spray" we used to fight the cockroaches when living in Malta. The poison did more harm to me than to the insects. So be careful!

Take the packages of your medicine, walk up to the health-centre and explain. I´m sure there is no difficulty to obtain a new presciption.
