@ndrbzz , have a word with the supplier of your Interferon. They might supply one. On flights, take the Interferon in the your hand luggage and ask one of the cabin crew to put it in a fridge.

Hi @ndrbzz ! When I was on Copaxone I had to travel with it in my purse. It wasn't a long trip but I was nervous that it would still get ruined. You can carry ice packs but like @stumbler had mentioned, def. talk to the workers on that plane. When I did research before traveling, they had mentioned to do this.. I am sure they are trained to deal with passengers that deal with medical needs.

Oops sorry forgot to add that it might be a bit challenging with the ice packs. Going back to my destination, the airport gave me a little bit of a rough time because I was not allowed to carry ice pack that was not frozen. Security pulled me to the side for a deeper search of my things.

@rel12 it's annoying that they can't put my stuff in the aircraft fridge (so they say) and my travel bag with ice packs keeps it barely cool (I tested it and it remains about 10°C below outside temp for 3-4 hours). I hope I won't screw all my plegridy injections 😭

It's beyond annoying! @ndrbzz Wish you luck - I am sure it will be fine!
