I have a relative that's coming over to visit us this summer. She's allergic to all kind of stuff, therefore she always carries an epipen filled with adrenaline in her purse. How will the airport security react to that? Does anyone have an experience with bringing sharps (epipen, microsyringe) trough airport security?

Hey Wildcat,


Managed to pick that up for you.

Quoting Frequently Asked Questions:
Are syringes and medical equipment permitted in my carry-on baggage?

Syringes, hypodermic needles and biojectors are permitted in your carry-on and checked baggage. Medication requiring syringes, hypodermic needles and biojectors must be for personal medical use and supported by labelled medication; as well, the needle guards must be in place.

Please ensure that your medication is properly labelled (professionally printed label identifying the medication or a manufacturer’s name or pharmaceutical label) and place it in your carry-on baggage in case it is required.

It is recommended that you bring documentation that supports your medical condition.

Thanks, NQYGuy, that takes care of Canadian airports. How about Europe? They're coming from VIE via FRA.

Says she can take her epipen through there, too. Roughly translated:

Quoting Vienna Airport Website:
Syringes, insulin, thrombosis allowed in hand luggage, see liquid medicines
