Default otc medicine and vitamin supplements

Has anyone ever had any problems when taking Over -the- counter medicines and vitamin supplements that where not in their original packages?


I buy these items in very large bottles from a bulk store and would not be able to take the bottles, planned to just take a few out and put them in a plastic baggie is this a bad idea?


Thanks for your help

Hi Afro,
I do the same thing with my vitamins, just take enough to last the length of the cruise, you should have no problems with that.

It all depends upon the customs agent. Most won't even care, but you never know.... I would buy one of those weekly pill dispenser containers over just throwing all your pills into a Ziploc type bag.

We do take a lot of vitamins every day. So we take a weekly holder for each of us. out prescription meds are taken in there original containers. I figure that way if we should be detained longer then expected we have our meds with us. Never have had a problem that way. Char

I too have purchased a weekly pill holder. If an agent thinks you are into drugs with them so neatly organized, I think they might need someone to talk to. We have never had a problem.

I put our OTC and our prescription drugs in the weekly pill dispenser. I took along a copy of each of our prescriptions in case we were questioned. They never even looked twice. A copy of your prescriptions is a good idea in case of an emergency where medical personnel would need to know what you are on and in case you were delayed for some reason.
