    I take several different types of vitamins and supplements every day. When I travel, I like to just take enough for the trip in one bottle. I have never traveled in Mexico before and wondered if this would be a problem. I don't want any issues getting into the country with alot of misc. pills in one bottle but I hate to have to pack several bottles of pills in my luggage.

    Can anyone tell me if they have done this and had any problems? I am leaving on Saturday and trying to get packed.

    Your best bet would be to take all the different bottles. If you happened to get stopped either going or coming it could make for one long day.

    I wouldn't mix different pills into one bottle even though they are just supplements/vitamins. I am sure many get through without issue, but I have seen them confiscated and heard of many people being delayed hours until the contents are inventoried, seperated and verified. A couple of extra bottles may help you get through without problems.

    Spend the extra time at the sexy pool vs. the airport secuirty pool;=)

    We had friends last year that got a pill dispenser (the daily kind I think) and had each slot marked as to what was in it, seemed to work for them.

    Going into another country, I don't think I'd count on that. It might have worked for those, but what happenes if you have to explain what things are. Then there's just gonna be a delay trying to explain things. Just doesn't seem worth the possible hassle not to have to carry a few other bottles with you. Or maybe just forget them for this one vacation.

    We always bring misc vitamins with us, normally in one bottle. They are always in my checked bag in a toiletry bag or something. Never had a problem.

    When we went down last year we put them in the daily dispenser container and into our checked luggage. It didn't even cross my mind to be concerned about airport security and having unlabelled pills.

    Our plan of being semi-healthy and exercising kinda fell by the wayside by the 3rd day so it's not like we really needed our vitamins anyways. Not sure if we'll bother taking them this year or not.

    I just went out of the US (and back) and had al lmy supps in my ckecked baggage. TSA opened it on the way to Miami, (They put a slip of paper in there telling you they opened it but didn't take anything.) but that was it. I never had any problems or got asked to explain anything.
