I have question regarding medication

Post by olyly94 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 12:17 am

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but am I allowed to bring prescription medication into the convention center with me? I take Xanax for my anxiety, and since I have a high chance of having an anxiety attack, I want to know if I'm allowed to bring it in with me. Thank you!

hey there!

As long as they're prescription medication you'll be fine but to make it more streamlined and easier, please also keep them in that orange bottle and not on their own.

In the event that something does happen at security check and it ends up taken, please immediately report it to Con ops which is located directly in front of the Dealer's Room on the first floor in Room 108 and we'll help you however we can to sort it out!

I've brought prescriptions in every year. I always keep them in their original bottle with the label and put them in a zip lock bag to keep them together during bag check.

I have a lot of health conditions, so I've brought bottles of both prescription and nonprescription medication into the convention in the past years. I've never had any issue with it. In the past, with other conventions, I've simply explained the situation if it's come up.
As others stated, it is helpful to keep it in the bottle with your name on it (for prescription drugs).
