Taking meds and OTCs out of the US

Jump to last reply

My husband and I plan on going to Europe for 3 weeks in Spring 2014. I’m on medications and doctor-recommended OTCs, mostly to counter side-effects of the meds.

I will be getting a printout from my pharmacy of current meds before leaving, and they’ve already said they’d get me extras so I don’t run out mid-trip.

Do I have to take the meds in their bottles? There’s 5 of them and we’ll just be using carry-ons.

For the OTCs, there’s 4 of them and some are big tablets. I already know that not taking them for 3 weeks is not a good idea for me. I would think that having baggies of pills in my luggage would look odd. Can I just put them in those weekly pill containers?
