While driving last week to a conference in south Texas, I got a raging headache. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any ibuprofen, which typically cures my headaches. So I asked my friend traveling with me if she had any. Not only did she have some, she had it in this adorable red pill case, neatly organized and labeled. It was much less chaotic than my normal four small bottles of pills I try to keep with me (ibuprofen, Pepto Bismol, Tylenol PM, vitamins). But it makes me nervous–I’ve always been told that it’s important for your medications to be in their original packaging in case your bags get searched. Has this been others’ experience as well? Or is that true only during international travel? Because I would LOVE to get all of my pills together, taking up less room, and easier to find.
Readers, what do you think?
