No, there are only restrictions on the amount you can carry, illegal substances, or if you don't have actual prescriptions for substances that require them.

So, what you need to do is make sure to take no more than the supply that is accounted for on the bottles and make sure that they are all in the appropriately labeled prescription bottles. Once through the security checkpoints, you can move a few doses to some other smaller carrying container, to have them more readily accessible, if you need to take any while flying. But to get through the checkpoint, they need to be in their fully labeled prescription bottles.

You should also make sure to have the phone number for your doctor's office with you at all times, just in case there are any questions and they want to verify anything.

Most doctors will also give you a printout of your needed medications, the dosing, dosing frequency and why they are needed that you can take with you, when you travel.

But since some people require life sustaining medications and denying them the right to carry such on a flight would be considered reckless endangerment, they have to allow you to carry your prescription medications.

So, as I said, just make sure they are all in the proper containers and don't throw any extra pills into any of them. If your prescription says it's for 30 tablets and you picked it up a day or two early and have extra doses, do not add them to the bottle. Leave them locked up back at school, or in their own bottle if you must carry them with you.

I'd advise getting that doctor's printout, just to save time. The last time I flew, I put all my prescription bottles in a clear zippered baggie, with the printout inside folded out so it could be easily read. The gentleman took a quick glance at it, counted the bottles in the bag to make sure there were no extras, then waved me on through.

Are there any other questions?
