Soon we are taking a 12 day trip US to Canada (Banff & Jasper). It will be my first time thru Customs with narcotic pain meds. Here is what I am planning. What am I forgetting?
--Notified my PM
--Taking twice what I need for 12 days of all meds
--In 2 sets of separate currently labelled pharmacy's Rx bottles
--Wife taking one in her carry-on
--Other in my carry-on medical duffle with my traction unit and tens. It is in a small Rx combination travel safe
--At Customs should I declare that I am carrying them or wait and let them ask or find them?
On domestic trips I have always just let TSA find them. They have always just quickly glanced at the labels and put them back without ever asking a question.
Severe DDD, Severe neural foraminal stenosis at 2 levels, moderate canal stenosis at 2 levels, significantly impaired left shoulder & arm function. Chronic moderate compression fracture at C6.
