As long as the inhaler was prescribed by your doctor than you should not have a problem with the inhaler in your carryon. Besides I do not think it has more than 3oz of liquid. The best thing to do is put all you prescriptions in one plastic bag. That way if they have can not tell what something is on the X-ray then it will be easy to find.

I always travel with an inhaler in my handbag. I don't even take it out, and have never had a problem.

I have had it the 311 bag and out of it in random places, and it has never been a problem. And right now I'm still using up my Primatene Mist (a travesty that it's not on the market saved my mom's life many times before rx inhalers were around and it works) so that's not even a prescription, and it is FINE.

I travel with 2 long lasting inhalers (symbicort) and 3 resuce inhalers (xoponex) when we travel. I usually have 2 just tossed in my purse and the other ones tossed in a bag with the rest of my medications. Never had any problems.

I've been flying with inhalers and epipens for over 20 years. I've never had any problems with either, not even after the liquid rules went into effect. Medications are exempt. If you go to the TSA website you can print off their rules just to keep with you in the unlikely even someone tries to argue with you.

Yes, they are allowed as everybody else has said. Just because I like to cover all my bases and try to head off potential issues/delays/questions before they come up, I put all liquid/inhaled/non-solid medication in its own gallon sized ziploc bag along with epi pens and take that out of my carryon and place it in a bin as my way of "declaring" these medicines. I've never had them looked at other than a full bottle of liquid antihistamine being swabbed (along with an apology from the TSA agent who very obviously thought it was ridiculous that she was required to do so but was just doing as she was instructed; I assured her no apology was necessary for just doing her job but you get the idea). I find it easier to declare them than to deal with the potential of my bag being searched while I try to explain to my autistic child why her medicine is being touched by a stranger.
