Packing meds anecdote

I traveled though Amsterdam on both ends of my recent trip. At security on the return, while watching my stuff go through the machine, I saw a person being questioned about the contents of an "original" RX container. I always carry my 2 daily meds in day of the week "sticks" with no problems.

I suspect the meds weren't the main reason the individual required another level of scrutiny, but I was amused.

I have all my vitamins & meds packed in my suitcase on top of everything so x-ray machine sees it clearly – not trying to hide anything –
I carry most everything without the original bottle as they take up too much room- I put them in small Ziplocs with the name of what each is & all of that in one big Ziplock
