I was hoping to find out if anyone has experience using medications on an airplane. Also, the security and airport when it comes to a old labeled prescription bottle. For example, I will be leaving the country for a week in July and I will need to take my Xanax, Oxy, and other medications that I am on with me. I may need to take some of the Oxy and Xanax well on the plane. Is this allowed as long as they're in the labeled prescription bottle? I plan on taking all of my medication in my carry-on bag, in case my luggage is lost.
I have seen the drug sniffing dogs at the airport. Are they trained to go off on any amounts of narcotics? In other words, could I be stopped because of the dog smelling my medication?
Also, how have dealt (as best as can be dealt with) with their pain while they are in a car or on a plane? A car, I believe will be easier than the plane because we can stop, and I am free to get out walk around and stretch whenever I need to.
I will be at the major airport And I was wondering if anyone knows if they would have wheelchairs available if needed. I am getting better at walking but it is impossible for me to stand in a line, it's one of my triggers for intense pain. I know I can probably call and check for the airport in this country, but I don't know how to check with the airports in the other country.
This is my honeymoon, and have it has already been canceled twice. I just want this to go very well. I have this worry that my medications may be confiscated and although I would not die, I would go into withdrawal and it would be a very miserable honeymoon. Please share any advice or experiences.
