The question was:

Can someone please advise me of the availability of ibuprofen in Spain? In the US it is available in large quantities at low cost without prescription but I know that in some countries you can only obtain small quantities at much higher prices.

Do I need to bring vitamins on my Camino de Santiago?

The question was:

I just put six weeks of vitamins in baggies and they weigh alot…well, at least the same as a large yellow onion.
Heres what I take per day: One Multi, One Flax, Two Fish Oil, One Cal/Mag/D3 combo.
Did anyone carry their vitamins, send any on ahead, or purchase along el camino?

Is hay fever or allergic rhinitis a problem on the Camino de Santiago?

Hay fever or allergic rhinitis a problem on the Camino de Santiago

The comment was:

It is far too early to be suffering from either pollen or hay allergy but I’m deffinately suffering from something. I think it is because of the very dry weather and when walking off road I am walking on dry leaves, this combined with the pollution from too many fires :!: Just a reminder for any one walking early who may expect to avoid the normal triggers of rhinitis :(
