Usa (Florida Trip).. Medication Regulations
My niece suffers from a few medical conditions (an allergy so carries epipen incase needed), some prescribed pain killers and asthmatic (uses asthma pump). We are due to travel to Florida couple of months time and I was wondering if there was any regulations as regards to carrying prescribed medication in her hand-luggage. Does she need any medical proof from her doctor with regards to the medication prescribed or can these just be carried in hand-luggage onboard flights and into the country. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

There is no problem in taking prescribed medication in her hand luggage on the aircraft. Nor will there be any problems taking prescribed medication into the US. There is no question on the US Customs declaration that asks about medication. She won`t have a problem. She could put her liquid based medications into the liquids bag but she doesn`t have to because they are prescribed medications and are exempt from the rules when accompanied by the prescription.
