Flying with Enbril medication

Hi! I will be flying into Amsterdam next month and will need to bring my Enbril pen which contains liquid medication and needs refrigeration. Any tips??

Ask your pharmacist.

Are you spelling the drug correctly? Enbrel (Etanercept) treats autoimmune diseases.

Storing and traveling with ENBREL

In general, you should keep ENBREL refrigerated between 36°F and 46°F,
or 2°C and 8°C, which is the standard temperature for refrigerators.
However, you can keep ENBREL at room temperature (between 68°F and
77°F, or 20°C and 25°C) for up to 14 days

Yes, ask your pharmacist and make sure she/he knows you're going to take it to Europe.
You want to make sure it's not on the US controlled substance list, and if it is, what documentation you need to take with you.

Enbril is know in the Netherlands and is not a controlled substance.
It is always good to carry an English letter explaining what you are using and it's purpose. Your medication can be stored without refrigeration for a maximum of 14 days.
