Stacey I have been on Gilenya for a few years, I’ve never had a problem bringing my tablets or any other medication away. When I was on rebif injections the meds had to be kept cool so I carried a letter from the doctors. Make sure you bring your Gilenya in your hand luggage, you don’t want it getting lost

Hey. To cover myself when I went to Turkey I got a letter off my MS nurse just in case. They are a massive help. Just call them and they will get a letter to you in the post xx

@stacey , the letter, mentioned above, is a useful piece of documentation.

If you’re foregoing travel insurance, make sure your EU cover is up to date :-

This cover does expire so make sure yours is OK.

@stacey – I used to travel with a full set of injections. Looked like a druggie par-excellence! I had a letter from my treatment team explaining it.

Pills – I wouldn’t wop0rry at all. You are only going to Europe for a few days. The drug is also licensed there so you don’t have contraband and there is no reason to query it.

Overall – travelling with a diagnosis letter that they can – should they wish – follow-up on is likely to set your mind at ease.

Ensure you have – assuming we are still in the EU – your E111 card.

PS: Your profile says you are on Copaxone. I guess you have changed drugs now.
