Has anyone carried on baggage on a domestic flight in the US lately? I always check my baggage because I bring so many products, but I'll be in a rush to get from my flight to an event so I don't want to have to wait around for my baggage to come out. I know the rule about bringing less than 3 oz of liquid and keep it in a clear, ziplock bag, but does anyone know if they allow medications? I need to pack my Retin A and I don't want it to get taken away at security. Anyone have any experience with this?

Yes, they encourage you to carry on all medications. But if your Retin A is in a size bigger than 3 oz, they may take it.

Actually, prescription medications and contact lens solution (and a few other things) are exempt from the 3 oz maximum and don't have to fit in your 1 qt bag.

Hi SnowWhite! I just got back from traveling in the US, and I didn't want to check my bags either so I just carried everything with me. What I did is this: I put all my toiletries into a 1 quart zip-loc EXCEPT for my contact lense solution, Tazorac, and prescription deodorant--- those I put in a larger, freezer zip-loc bag. All you have to do is let someone know that you have some medical supplies that you would like to declare, and they will run them through the machine and send you on your way--- no problem at all. However, every now and then you will get a security officer who will be unaware of the rules and they may hassle you. If this happens you need to have a copy of the rules printed out from tsa.gov to show them. You can also ask to see a manager if need be, but it has never come to that with me. It helps if you declare your medical supplies sweetly and nicely--- no one wants to hassle that sweet cute girl who is just trying to catch her plane. HTH!!

The last few times I've travelled with the new restrictions, I send ahead a package of anything I think might be over the 3oz limit for liquids, OR, that I don't want to put in checked baggage ... hair or skin products, gifts, medication/supplements portioned out for the time of the trip, etc. This of course won't work on a last-minute trip unless you FedEx'd it, and it won't work if you're going out of the country. But when I go to my parents at Christmas, or visit a friend, that's what I'm doing now--sending stuff ahead. Then I use it up while I'm there, and have nothing extra to bring back!
