Hi Dr. Young, as always thank you for your answers, I'm doing very well on my regimen, but next month i'm traveling to florida for a conference, and i'm very afraid of carring my medicines with me (Carry-on Baggage), i choose a schedule that alow me to don't traveling between my hour pills, in that way i can send them by cargo, but i want to carry one or to dosis with me, but i'm very scare that they will ask me what are those medications for, and then i probably will be in trouble, since i'm under working visa status, so i really apprecciate any information that you can give me about this issue. Thanks Spanish

Response from Dr. Young


Good to hear from you.

So long as your medicines are in their prescription bottles with your name on them, there shouldn't be any problems. Frankly, the TSA has many other things to worry about than your antiretroviral medications.
