I just started on TriMix, but I travel frequently to Europe and So.America.  How do you travel with it and keep it refrigerated? you can't carry it on as your limited to 3 oz, so no way to keep it refrigerated on a 8 or 10 hour flight.  Has anyone done it sucessfully?  thanks in advance!

Yes there is a way, mine gets shipped to me overnight and gets to me still nice and chilly as its packed in an insulated pack and 2 ice packs and thats in the order of 24 hrs

If the vial was shipped to you then it had to be cold packed, in an insulated bag and reusable ice packs, that should be good for one day plus the luggage hold is not heated, actually its pretty cold in there

if no ice packs then pick them up at most any drugstore or supermarket

Ditto to the ice packs which can be purchased almost anywhere for a dollar or two.  AND, trimix doesn't "have" to be  refrigerated...but it'll last longer if you keep it cold.

thanks guys, I know how it gets shipped, but my question was regarding taking it with me on trips, you can't put it in carry on baggage since the ice packs exceed 3 oz and I was wondering if anyone had packed it in their checked baggage and 1) is it pulled out because when they check it thru the scanner it looks odd as I would guess most people don't travel with frozen ice packs in their luggage? and 2) how long is it good for if you don't refrigerate it? My trips are usually close to 15 hours on the plane( L.A. to Rio and L.A. to Prague) thanks again!

We've had ice packs taken away at airports so check the 'banned list' or call the security people to ask about them.

Many have gel in them and it's banned, that's what we were told......even though they were for 'medical reasons'.

Once on the airplane we were supplied with a plastic bag full of ice, will that be of use to you?

Or could the attendants refrigerate it for you during the flight?

Just a thought. Good luck.

Most airlines have procedures in place to accommodate temp. sensitive medicines for passengers. Call your airline and ask. People travelling with insulin and such usually ask the attendant for an ice bag and maybe a plastic container, or as mentioned- ask them to store it for you in the refig. Make sure you use the original dispensed vial/bottle and maybe have a copy of the prescription will ease the way.
