How do I Pack my Prescription medications?
In a one-quart size transparent zip-top plastic bag, store your prescriptions (in 100 milliliter/3.4 ounce or smaller containers) and any other personal liquid and gel goods you want to bring with you. Prescription drugs in bigger containers or bottles will need to be packed separately in your carry-on bag if they arrive in larger containers or bottles.
Can you bring liquid medications in a carry-on bag?
Remember that if you do bring your drugs in a carry-on bag, any liquid medications you’re taking will not be subject to the TSA’s regulations on liquids, which you should keep in mind. Provided you have more than 3.4 ounces of liquid medication in your carry-on luggage, you will not be denied boarding if you have the prescription in your possession.
