You should also keep it in its original packaging to avoid problems with border officials. Plus, carry a copy of your doctor's prescription with you in case you need to get medication while away. If your medication requires sterile needles or syringes, stay out of trouble with the law by carrying a doctor's explanation or medical certificate with you.
Going on a cruise? The main medical complaint by cruise travellers is motion sickness. Ask your doctor if you can take any medications to help with nausea.
