My Travel Prescription Checklist

___ Plan ahead. Refill prescriptions to make sure you won’t run out.

___ Get a copy of your prescription so you can refill it on the road if necessary.

___ Carry a list of all your medications, their prescription numbers, and contact information for your physicians and hometown pharmacy.

___ Pack all medications carefully in carry-on luggage.

___ For medicine that requires refrigeration, pack in a cooler with ice for a short trip. For longer trips, consider replacing a liquid drug with a powder form to which you can add water when you arrive.

___ If you are flying and your medical supplies exceed the 3 ounce carry-on limit, tell the checkpoint security agent and you will be subjected to additional screening.

___ Write out your regular medication schedule, so that if you are traveling to a different time zone, you can adjust your medication schedule accurately.

___ Check with your physician or pharmacist again to confirm foods or liquids that may interfere with certain drugs, in case you are faced with unfamiliar menus in foreign countries.

___ Avoid drinking alcohol, which can interfere with many prescription and non-prescription medicines and could cause dehydration on flights in high altitudes.
