About Us

Med+ is an answer to a call we experienced while operating our main site, Life Abroad. Through our analytics, we were able to see that the majority of visitors to our site came in search of medical information. Med+ is an interactive source of information regarding over-the-counter medications available in Japan, with a social media aspect that allows users to recommend certain medicines to others through the use of comments, likes, Facebook, and Twitter. Our goal with Med+ is to get more reliable information out to those who need it, and allow our users to communicate with each other regarding their own experiences with different medicines.

We take our role in the "gaijin" community very seriously, and we strive to continue to improve the lives of people from all over the world who have chosen to make Japan their home. No matter where you're from, you have the right to easily accessible, reliable, easy-to-understand information regarding the products we use every day.

We sincerely hope that this site will help improve your life and make your daily comings and goings more informed and full of confidence.

From the Life Abroad team, we wish all of our fellow foreigners the very best in their journey, and we will be here with you every step of the way.


The following information can be found on the Med+ website.

OTC Med Info

We provide detailed information about over-the-counter medications available in Japan, including active and inactive ingredients, instructions for use, and warnings, all translated into English by a professional translator. You can be sure that the information you find is true and accurate to the original Japanese content.


The Med+ site allows you to create an account that will allow you to leave comments on various medicines, leaving your opinion, experience, or recommendations to other foreign residents of Japan. In this way, we hope that we can help close the gap between foreign residents and the daunting prospect of buying medication in a foreign language.


At Life Abroad, and subsequently on the Med+ site, we do not tolerate abusive or hateful rhetoric. You can rest easy knowing that should anyone be provoked or attacked in any message on the site, it will be promptly dealt with in order to keep peace, harmony, and the spirit of camaraderie the main focus of our mission.
