when TSA states that medications should be clearly labelled, does it mean we can carry supplements/pills in pill boxes with handmade labels? or is it that all medications should be in their original containers? i don't want to get snagged through the check in line just because of my medications. i'll be carrying both prescription pills (in their blister packs anyway) and supplements in my upcoming international travel

Not sure where you are traveling, but also be aware that certain countries have restrictions on what can be brought in, prescription or not. Pseudoephedrine compounds, codeine compounds, many drugs that are prescribed in the US to treat ADD/AHDD can't be legally brought in to Japan, even if you have a prescription.

I only take 2 Rx meds and I travel with those in their original Rx bottles.

Adderall canít be brought into Japan. Vyvanse CAN be, but there is documentation required.

i only take one script pill in its blister pack. all the rest are supplements. now the supplements (cinnamon, coconut oil, multivit, antioxidants, OTC antihistamines, magnesium), do they need to be in their original containers?

Keep them in their original containers.

What about prescriptions that are in a different person's name? Is that a problem with the TSA?

Are you traveling with that person? If not, why would you have prescriptions in a different person's name with you?

Well, considering that possession of prescription drugs not prescribed to YOU is a crime (and in many cases a felony) anywhere in the U.S. I think your worry about traveling with them outside the U.S. is misplaced...

I think an exception would be made for children obviously. I'm able to sign and pick up Rx for my kids and wife no problem.
