Medications should always be in your carryon.

The TSA web site has instructions on medicines. All medicines including liquids are allowed. Keep any liquid medicines separate and present them at the checkpoint for separate inspection. I have had no problem with prescriptions and with brand new liquid medicines with unbroken seals. I threw out the open non-prescriptions medicines for my return trip to avoid any disagreement on the regulations.. but here for your reference (see last paragraph):

Medicine isn't restricted to fitting into a certain size bag

To be on the safe side (i.e. so you're not questioned when you're going through Security), you should always carry medication in it's original container and with the prescription label, if it's a prescription med.

Not necessary for US travel. The TSA isn't interested in your meds.

If it's a liquid it needs to be in a labeled containter. Otherwise the "theatre" might not take your word that's a medicine.

(Of course it would never occur to a terrorist to pour out the benadryl would it? Thousands Standing Around acting like "security" LOL )

Nah, I never do that, and I have never been questioned. I divide up my meds so that I have some in my carry-on and some in my checked bags. Just in case I lose my purse, or in case my checked bag gets a little lost. You don't need to have them in the original bottles.

Ah...that makes sense for domestic flights! Being a Canadian flying into the U.S, I'm so used to going through Customs so I'm always making sure I have original bottles for any meds...last thing I want is Customs thinking I'm trying to smuggle illegal drugs! That would be a quick way to ruin a vacation!

That is not necessary. I never take original containers. They really don't care about pills.

You really don't need to carry the original pill bottles crossing into the US -- Japan, perhaps, but not here.

To be safe, and in case you need to replace a med here for any reason, carry paper copies of the bottle labels (your pharmacist can create a printout of those for you), but you can leave the bottles themselves at home.

I do this routinely when traveling internationally in North America and Europe, and it is just fine.
