    Has anyone ever had an issue bringing IV supplies and fluids into Mexico? Dehydration can be quite a bitch but I can see how it might be viewed as potential for illicit drug use.

    I didn’t think it would be a big deal but then I saw that it is illegal to bring cold meds that have pseudoephedrine in them like NyQuil!

    I've brought Epi pens and other prescriptions on carry on. I wouldn't think the NS or LR would be a deal if you packed it but the IV caths might cause you problems. When we were at DP they were offering it in the room for $150 ish.

    We've never had a problem bringing them, though I didn't tell anyone that it was in my bag.......

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I’m glad to hear you didn’t have a problem.


    They made me check my colostomy bag at the gate and charged me $75.00. :eek:

    I think that was a shitty move by the airline.
