Imitrex injections and flying?

Has anyone experienced a problem traveling with imitrex injections (the stat pen)?  Any issues with airport security during the xray process?  (They took fingernail clippers away from my 60-year-old mother when we were on our way to my grandma's funeral.)  Is there any documentation required to carry it with you on a plane?  My prescription label is on the box, but not on the carrying case.  Just wondering...

I bet your mom is pretty mean with those finger nail clippers.  Like Bruce Lee with noonCHuks... laugh
 
I've never tried it....
Maybe call the airlines and ask?

Somebody here must've done it...

I flew to Aruba with them No problem.
No questions asked.
I did get a letter of necessity from doc. just in case.
 
Airlines will allow it.

Thanks!  Given that we have to educate our Drs., insurance companies, co-workers, spouses and whoever else about CHs, I just thought that the average airport security person wouldn't understand why I'd be upset if they took my imitrex from me.

I would not take enough with that I would get brutally upset about losing them.
 
And if I were smack in the middle of a cycle and could not live without them for a day I would most likely have a Dr's letter along saying that they are AOK.
 
Then I always have a few Trex tablets (better than nothing) somewhere in my pack.

I flew from Manchester UK to Maldives and was told to put them in my luggage that was going in the hold, I could have taken them on the flight as hand luggage with a letter from my GP and given them to a flight attendant who would let me have them during an attack, with the captains permission!!
 
Better safe than sorry
 
If you got one out over a flight in the USA on eof th eflight marshalls may get angry!
