    It takes up to 6 weeks for meds to fully kick in.

    Listen to your doctor.

    Is your trip necessary can it be put off for a bit until you are feeling better

      Well you still have  about 10 days so they may have settled by then and yes diaz is a good idea to stay calm.

      Control your breathing and distract yourself strick up a conversation with someone on the plane the flight is not that long.

      Have a great time you will be finecool
