I am going on my honeymoon in august and with all the new travel airline restrictions i was hoping someone could help me out.  I was wondering if anyone had traveled with the M9 drops from Hollister and if so how do you get through security without drawing to much attention to yourself or even allowing you to take them on your flight without a rx?  I emailed the TSA agency and they were NO HELP!!!

I asked at the gate the last time I had to drop someone off, I have a vacation coming up in Aug. They said that as long as you need it medically, it's no big deal, they see this stuff all the time. However, I went on the web site to check out what you can bring, and it says everything has to be 3 ounces or less in your carry on. They do make small bottles of M9, so I'm going to order a box and bring a couple in my carry on, and a lot more big ones in my checked baggage.

I go on a lot of business trips. What I do is put an ounce or two of deoderant in a small bottle along with my ostomy supplies in my carry on. If it's going to be an extended trip, I'll put extra supplies in my regular baggage. I've never had a problem. Have fun on your honeymoon!!!
