Allergy questions + Flying with epi-pens
 
I have 2 kids with possible food allergies and me and DH have allergies (2 different kinds). Right now I carry 2 sets of epi-jrs + chewable benedryl and adult benedryl in the bag, it's heavy.

1. Is this what I should have on me?
2. Can I fly with the epi-pens?
3. I bought liquid benedryl, it comes in 4oz, it's sealed, will TSA allow it?

I have never needed to use these things while out but do NOT want to be the one with a food allergy reaction and nothing on us (also allergic to latex and animals)

go to the tsa website and print off their regulations for medications, i had no trouble traveling with medications larger than the allowed amount the last time I flew but it can't hurt to have the information on you.

I have flown with liquid meds and it has been fine, but having the info printed off would be a great idea.
As well, they do sell individual doses of Benadryl, might lighten your load and make it easier with regulations

In ten years of flying multiple times a year, I have had one person, once, give me crap about the Epi-Pen. I keep mine in the box it came in with my prescription label on it when I fly so they know it's really for me.

I always have Benadryl in tablets for me as well. As for the liquid Benadryl, if it's over the 3oz amount, you may just need to either have a note from the doctor on a prescription pad saying it's necessary or you will need to call the airline beforehand to confirm.

I've seen them before but can NOT find them anywhere, maybe they stopped doing them? :headscratch:

wags has their own perfect measure so I'll order that, it's sure pricey!

I have quick desolve tabs, but the liquid is better? I am new to this stuff

No one even asked about he dpi pens I carried for dd. I brought the box they came in and I have labels on then individually from the pharmacy because for school it has to be officially hers. They sell the individual dose benedryl at cvs it is their store brand though

When going through security I was asked about "sharps". I mentioned i had epi pens and was told "you and everyone else".
