bringing liquid medication on board

I don't know where else to ask this...I have a 30 ml bottle of liquid nasal spray. Is this ok to keep in my purse or carry on? Thanks!

If you want to clear a TSA check point, the best place for it is in your liquids bag.

It’s only 1 oz which is less than the 3.4 oz allowed but would need to go in a separate 1 qt. resealable plastic bag per the 3 1 1 rules. The container that holds the nasal spray cannot be larger than 3.4 oz.

If it's a prescription item it would be exempt from the 3-1-1 rule. If not, as the PP said, just put it in your quart sized bag.

Please note: If you’ll be making a connection in an international airports, such as Heathrow, any liquid ( prescription or not) will need to go into the 3-1-1 quart sized bag.

This is from my own experience traveling with prescription eye and ear drops.

The size of the bottle is fine. Just put it in your 3-1-1 bag. After security, you can put it anywhere you want.

Flonase? I always toss mine in my liquids bag in my carry on. The last few times I've travelled, my liquids have been either completely ignored or just glanced at.

But I think Rx is exempt even from this. I fly Canada - Germany - Switzerland.

Nickelin - not Flonase, but similar bottle and size. It is a prescription, so I hope it will be ok. Thanks

As I said before, it's fine. You just can't leave it in your purse or carry on. You must put it in a ziploc type bag (clear and resealable) no larger than one quart/one liter and it has to go through the baggage screener separately.
