Funny how when asked a simple yes or no question you do not respond.

I would say you are fine. But if they stop you at the UK border and check your bags. It will take about 10 more minutes for them to ask what is this pill and what is that pill. Worst case if you look like a junkie, they will test each pill with a machine and that can take hours. Inside schengen, it is very uncommon that someone will check your bags, but again UK is not in schengen, so you may have the same problem when going to Belgium.

We put all of our Rxs and OTC drugs including several vitamins into plastic baggies. Never had any trouble traveling anywhere in the world including going through LHR last week.

That relates to <u>controlled</u> substances. Not vitamins or most prescriptions. If one is carrying opiates and such -- OF COURSE take the labels. But for regular meds OTC/Prescription/supplements it is not required.

Not anecdotal at all . . . the TSA website says original containers and labels are not required. The British website says approx the same thing. For the UK one needs the prescription or a letter from doctor >>for <u>liquid</u> meds over 100ml.<<

i was wondering if you knew anything about being gummy vitamins/sleep gummies and Iím bring like ibuprofen and bendrayl (travel size) but I also have adderal Iím getting a letter from my doctor do yo I think itís okay to put the gummies in baggies or just leave them in their original container or not take them at all or any websites that will help I have tired researching but I canít find anything going to London England
