Your meds need to go in your carry-on when you’re flying. You really don’t want to be without them if your checked bags are lost.

I travel with about a half-dozen oral medications. I keep them in their original pharmacy containers and carry those in a see-through food freezer bag. Using that method, I’ve never had a problem with security, in any airport in any country.

In the United States, the TSA considers needles and syringes medically necessary items and you can carry them on after they’re screened, just like pills. The Transportation Security Agency has a lot of good information about traveling with medications and medical devices on its website.
