Stock Your Carry-on Bag
Before you get on that plane, make sure that you have all of the items you can't live without packed in your carry-on baggage. Checked luggage can get lost on a flight, and losing access to your meds -- or anything else important to your health and well-being -- would be a major bummer. Aside from your must-have prescription medications, also include any over-the-counter meds you may take, including antacids, anti-inflammatory pills and aspirin. And don't forget a clean pair of undies in case your luggage remains stateside.
