Air travel with Interferon

Folks,

Getting ready to travel for first time with Interferon and syringes.  Any advice for keeping it cold and dealing with airport security?

FYI: I'm in week 18 of tx, 1a with CC gene.  I got through the Incivek phase - a nightmare but doable.  I was <43 at week 4 and UD at week twelve.  Didn't get firebutt or rash yet, but became severely depressed and my hemo dropped to 9.2 in week 15.  Couple of shots of Procrit brought me back to 10.2.

Thank you,

Herd

Do they run your meds through the  scan what will it do to them will it affect the meds. Good question I guess I call the airline see what the policy was before going.

Frio wallet.

I've never flown with interferon but plenty of times with insulin.  I've never had a problem, even though my bottles didn't have a script label on them (the labels are on the box, not the bottles, which I never travelled with).

I just flew to FL at Christmas, they put it thru the scan but it's fine.

Put them in with a cool pack, and bring your script with you or make sure your name is on the box/bottles.
You should have no problems.

Yes I put the boxes with the script on it and I took it in my little med cooler with ice packs. They were more worried about this little metal tape measure and my coach change purse. The holidays are the worst time of year to fly.
