Unsealed pills ok for airlines?

Jump to last reply

Hey Guys!

I have left over malaria pills that I never used and want to bring them with me to South Africa just to have incase I travel into an area that is not Malaria free. This is a weird question but, if I no longer have them in the bottle that had the prescription on it, can I still put them in my checked luggage and get into the country fine with them?

Basically, the pills would be in a bag or whatever, unsealed, not in their original prescription bottle. Curious if security would confiscate them because I no longer have my prescription? (Either in the US or once in South Africa) I realize most loose pills are fine, but because they are not just over the counter medicine I don't want to risk loosing them if I don't have to. Let me know. thanks!
