Traveling abroad (outside the US) with your medications
« on: September 06, 2006, 03:37:57 PM »
Are there any restrictions when going to Europe if you're HIV+??? Also, are you allowed to bring your meds with you when going abroad? I'm worried my meds might be confiscated at customs when I enter some EU countries.

You should be worried with your meds when going back to the good ol'U.S.A., not Europe!  There is no restriction whatsoever  in the E.U. for Poz visitors. As usual, though, you should have your meds labeled with your name and/or your doctor''s prescription stating that the meds are for you.

Hello Suntropic98, it is Eldon.

It has been a while since I last heard from you. However, it is a good thing that I am hearing from you now. As far as your travels are concerned, I did a little research and I found some information which should be very helpful for you:

It covers the In's and out's of Traveling With HIV. Enjoy your trip!

You shouldn't have any problems at all.  Just make sure your pills are in their bottles and labelled.  Also, keep them in your carry-on.  If they lose your luggage and your pills are in there, you've had it.

Hi Eldon!

Thanks! Its been a little while since I've been on board. I've been busy working, going to the beach and trying to avoid hurricanes! LOL. This time of year is horrible for Floridians. I think we have another 3 storms to watch out for right now? Yikes!!! Thanks for the info!

Yea, they have their labels. I'm planning on going to Italy and Amsterdam this fall/early winter. I have not been on a vacation outside of the US in about 6 years and I'm overdue.  ;D

the easiest thing to do is to separate your meds out with your other supplements.  i keep mine in a weekly holder.  i also get a note from my doctor stating what meds i am on.  i keep a couple days worth in my carry on and the rest in my luggage,  just in case.  i have never had a problem
