A list will be helpful should you get stuck and need to replace a medication, or if you and your bags are separated. Always pack your pills in your carry-on bag so that they’re accessible at all times. If you are on various MS therapies; your medication may require refrigeration; ice packs are a good temporary fix until you get to a fridge.
