Frequently Asked Questions
The Bookstyle bag and Roletui are particularly suitable for pills in the original blister packaging (strips). Loose pills will make the cases dirty faster and are also more difficult to take out. We recommend bringing the pill strips in the cases and the loose pills in sorting boxes or resealable plastic bags. You can carry the sorting boxes separately in the front pocket of the Bookstyle pouch. You can carry the plastic resealable bags in the zipper pockets. This also allows you to protect them from heat or cold. Our cases come without sorting boxes or pouches.
Look carefully at the size of the medicine boxes and compare them with your own medications. Most common pills and/or pill strips fit in it. The product information includes specifications and images that allow you to assess whether your medications will fit.
In general, you are not required to bring medications with you in their original packaging. So you may bring your pills in sorting boxes. The only exception is medications for which you must have a medical certificate. These include heavy painkillers, ADHD medications, etc. These should always be brought in their original packaging. You can check with the embassy of the country you are going to if you need a certificate. By the way, it is not recommended to carry pills in sorting boxes. Shaking often causes the lids to open unintentionally and the medications are less protected from heat and cold. In addition, in case of any questions from customs or doctors abroad, you cannot indicate which pill belongs to which prescription.
A medicine passport is not required but is highly recommended. It is a paper chart that lists your name, your medication, your allergies and hypersensitivities in English. Of the drugs, not only the brand name is listed, but also the substance name. In foreign countries, this allows you to easily get help at a doctor's office, pharmacy or hospital. It is also helpful at customs to indicate that your medication was prescribed to you. You can pick up your medication passport at your pharmacy. It is usually provided free of charge. In our Bookstyle bag, there is a convenient pocket for your medication passport, which allows it to be kept and viewed with the medication at all times.
A medication passport is a paper record of your medications in English and is provided by the pharmacy. It is not mandatory.
Do you use heavy painkillers, medications for ADHD, medicinal cannabis or sleep aids, for example? A medicine passport or a prescription by name is then not enough. These drugs cannot be imported into the country without an official medical certificate. Without a medical certificate, travelers risk severe penalties. After all, they are illegal to possess. You should check if you need a medical certificate or Schengen declaration. Please note that it takes a few weeks to receive the statement. Apply for these on time.
Yes, you may. For liquid medication, the rule is that you may take as much as you need. So that may be more than 100 ml. The condition is that the liquid be brought in the original bottle with name and prescription label. Please note that this does not apply to, for example, lens solution or cooling gel. For this, the rule is that this should be max. 100 ml per item and presented to customs in a transparent bag of max. 1 liter.
In general, passengers are allowed to bring on board medications and related supplies (such as needles, syringes and injection machines) for the treatment and management of their medical condition. It is recommended that the syringes and injectable medications be transported together and have clear labels with your name and the medication OR bring a medical certificate or cover letter from your doctor stating your name and the medication. Used needles and syringes should be disposed of in special waste containers for needles or other sharp waste. Please note that cabin crew may not help you inject.
It is best to ask your pharmacist. He or she knows your medications best. For all medications, it is generally true that they should not be kept too warm. This can have an adverse effect on shelf life. Eye drops, suppositories, creams, ointments and insulin are especially sensitive to heat. However, some medications should also not get too cold. Note this when using cooling elements. Some airlines allow small amounts of medication to be kept in refrigeration. Most of the time, however, this is not possible and you are forced to properly protect your medications from temperature variations yourself. Be sure to check out your options beforehand.
This is best discussed with your pharmacist. It depends on the type of medication you want to take with you and the circumstances in which you are traveling. In our Bookstyle bag, there is room in the front pocket for a small cooling element. Note that some medications should not get too cold.
