I think you'd have to have the illness before you took it, although I think I'd take some with me, lolol

Take a bottle of pepto bismol too.

I did when traveling through India & Morocco - in the UK if you are going to a country with a high risk of food issues, they give it out preventatively. It saved me from being sick; everyone else in my group got ill, and I've traveled extensively across Asia and other places without it, and got sick every time. It's worth paying out of pocket IMO - much, much better than the "queasy bug" free discount card
