(HealthDay News) — When you’re flying with prescription drugs, be sure to prepare them carefully before you head out for the airport.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests these precautions for air travel withprescription medications:
Pack your meds in a carry-on bag, so they don’t get lost.
Carry with you a list of your prescriptions, including brand and generic names.
Carry a letter, on your doctor’s letterhead, with the physician’s prescription for any injectable or controlled substance.
Make sure someone at home has an extra copy of your prescriptions.
If traveling internationally, consult with the American Embassy or Consulate to ensure that your meds are allowed in the host country.
