I traveled with it in my luggage, not carry on. Didn't have any problem at all.

In a flare for 2 very long years which Asacol didn't help at all.  Finally in remission again since Jan 2008, can't believe it..............
currently on Sulfasalazine 2 tabs 3x day. Folic acid, mesalamine enema once a week. Omega 3, Probiotics, multi vitamin, calcium supplement, Biotin 5000mcg, Fibercon.

I did the same as Donna. I didn't need it with me on the plane, but I just found this on the TSA website that says prescription liquid medications are allowed through security, but the page explains how to do it.

ulcerative proctitis diagnosed in 1989, active 3 years, but controlled with Sulfasalazine and cortisone enemas
15 year remission off all meds 1992-2007
ulcerative colitis returned May 2007, no remission since
concurrent infections at diagnosis: c-diff, cmv colitis, both treated and negative
meds: asacol, 4-3x/day
started remicade 4/22/08

I would put it in your carry on because you don't want to lose it. You do have to declare it however as it is a liquid. If you are embarassed by it that could suck. But the people around you are just strangers. You can always ask for a hand search or privacy. I have never had them so I didn't have that issue. But when its your turn say I have some liquid medications I would like to show you in private and they should be able to take you aside. But they seem embarassed too. I traveled with hydrocortizone cream forgetting I had it in there and they seemed to know what it was for (as it was near all my other butt products) and were like "its ok" and tossed it back in the bag.
26 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.
