Keep Prescription Drugs in Their Original Containers
Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Rick S. who says:
“I am a pharmacist and recommend keeping OTC (over-the-counter) and prescription drugs in the original containers, especially when traveling outside of the US. This will positively identify you as the legal possessor of prescription drugs. Ideally, this should also be done when traveling within the US, but if not, the authorities could call your prescriber or pharmacy to verify the drugs were issued to you. Also, your pharmacy will provide you with a duplicate, labeled container at no charge upon your request.”
Always good to hear from the experts. Thanks, Rick!
