At my travel vaccine appointment, I was highly encouraged to keep all my medications in their original packaging so airport security and/or customs can see the prescription is valid.
I spent yesterday packing my medications, and quickly came to the realization that including ALL of the medication’s original packaging was infeasible.
There is just too much cardboard. In lieu of packing all of the original packaging, I resorted to just trying to include the prescription label. For instance, I kept the parts that showed my insulin prescriptions:
And I kept the part of the bag that my test strips came in which shows the prescription, just without all those voluminous cardboard boxes in the way.
At the end of the day, my three month of supplies, with the prescription labels but without the excess packaging, fit into this:
I’ll be interested to see if this strategy works during our trip, and will report back.
Has anyone out there had issues getting through airport security or customs without packaging or the prescription?
