Noah- hope all is well....

 

Take meds in prescription bottles only- don't separate them.

go on TSA website and print out medical condition card- I'm hoping I can use it to avoid taking off my shoes in security

Investing in TSA Pre Check is worth it if you will travel much. Leave shoes on etc.  Not sure the private screening will be easier or less painful than PreCheck. For what it is worth.

I agree with what others have said.  And wear the bracelet during travel.  I also carry a "to whom it may concern" letter from my neuro, just a couple of sentences saying that I have Parkinsons and these are the meds I'm on.  I traveled to Ecuador two years ago with that letter with the thought that one never knows what the customs people may confiscate and so I'd need to get to a pharmacy and doctor to renew the prescriptions.  That won't happen in Arizona :-) but I still carry this letter even for just a road trip to the next state.  Just a precaution in case of anything your imagination can dream up.
