salt tablets

katherine salant asked 6 years ago

I am a senior American in San Isidro de El General and having a very hard time adjusting to its hot and humid climate, not uncommon a reaction for visitors I gather. I think that salt tablets (a remedy that has fallen out of favor with the advent of Gatorade type sports drinks in the US) would help. Do you know of any place here that sells them? I have asked at several pharmacies in town and they do not know what I am talking about.

Hi Katherine, 
We’re not sure where you could get those down here. We’ve never seen them, but then again, we haven’t looked either. Maybe you could order some like this (link) on Amazon and have someone coming down bring them in their luggage? That’s what we usually have to do for hard to find items. Hope this helps, it sure has been hot lately!
