In Germany, Greece and possibly other European countries the pharmacy does not put any type of prescription label on. You just get the medication in its original packaging, without so much as a slip of paper saying “NovoRapid - Your Name Here”. I’ll be flying back to the US in a couple of months for the first time since moving overseas and I’ll have inhalers, insulin, pump stuff, pills… and not one single thing has my name on it or anyway to prove it’s legally prescribed to me. Surely Europeans with prescriptions must travel. How is this handled with security in the US or at Heathrow? Anyone know?
I should add that I DO have copies (not originals) of the actual prescriptions (in German, of course). Maybe I should tape them onto the insulin vials and inhalers, lol?!
