Check with your airline what the requirement is first, they should have the correct information.

When you get a prescription, they should give you one half of it - take that if you still have it. otherwise, make sure you keep the tablets in their original bottle with the label, don't decant them into some space-saving container.

A note from your GP detailing all medication and dosages.

Didn't have a problem with my pain madication [quite strong] and IBS meds but had letter just in case.

Have a good time.
