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.
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).
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.
