Carrying medications and laundry detergent abroad

Jump to last reply

I will be bringing a few prescription medications in their original containers but would also like to bring some melatonin, Tylenol, and vitamins but not in their original bottle as they are all rather large. Can I carry them in a pill box or even a Ziploc bag onto the plane and through customs in Frankfurt and Rome without arousing suspicion or being taken aside for further questioning?

I also found some "pods" of dry laundry detergent and thought I might bring a few along so that I don't have to look for that when we need to wash clothes but again don't want to raise suspicion that it might be something contraband.

On our last trip (2010) I wasn't allowed to carry some tiny cuticle scissors so I know things can be rather strict.

Thanks for sharing your experiences!
