Travel Tip: Can I take my medication in my carry on?

My Vacation Lady will get asked questions like this a few times a month and since we found some information from the TSA on this, we thought it would be a good topic to cover.

1.  Do I need to pack my pills in the original containers from the pharmacy?

2.  Can I carry medication in my carry on?

3.  Can I take insulin with me on the plane?  Should I tell the TSA that I have insulin with me?

Flying with medication

Hopefully this information from the TSA answered your questions about flying with medication.

We always suggest that you carry a list of the medications and dosages separately, in case you need to replace any medication at your travel destination.  Also, if you are carrying needles for your insulin or other medications that need to be injected, we also recommend carrying a note from your physician.

Please always carry enough medication with you for your entire trip and then a few extra dosages, in case of delays, etc.

We,  at My Vacation Lady, always prefer that you are safer in carrying extra rather than running short.

Wherever your travels take you, safe travels.
