My husband & I have 14 days left before we get to AC(paradise!!!--meaning 7 days with no KIDS!!) One of the "what to take" reports said something about taking a copy of prescription drugs with you---does that mean, just in case you lose and need to have it refilled OR do you have to show proof(other than the pill bottle) what it is/where you got it, etc.? May be a dumb question. Other than that, we're gearing up for a great adventure!! Cannot wait. We will be at Banana Beach April 16-23. Sounds heavenly!!!! sharri

I take my medications with me. I have never been questioned. I don't think it's anything to worry about. So don't.
Put them in your carry on bag so you don't lose them. They may not be replaceable immediately. [Linked Image]

Enjoy your trip.

If I remember correctly, I think the report said to bring a copy of the prescription for your eyeglasses, just in case you lost them.

As for prescription medications, as long as they're in their original containers, it should be no problem.

Enjoy your trip!! We hope to make it down in June sometime.

Question about taking vitamins?
My wife and I are big on taking natrual herbs and vitamins instead of meds. Will we have trouble if in original bottle?

DC6Pack, I've brought in my vitamins in a small baggie (to save room) and was never questioned about it.
