Been a few threads on this.
We take them in our hand luggage, if your cases went awol it could be expensive getting prescriptions there.

Definitely take it in your hand luggage!

be aware, some drugs we have here are "illegal" over there!
I had a chesty cold a few days before travelling, GP gave me a drug which is a "trafficable" offence! the ladys in boots thought it was really funny, and soon called the gp and changed it for something less offensive:lmao:
deff take everything in hand lugage, things that you could nt easily replace anyway, we did ME and our suitcases arrived 10hours after we did, ds needed his asthma meds, luckily i had split them between 4 suitcases:goodvibes

Also, many holds are not heated so the medicine can be ruined by the cold
