Accutane and flying

Recommended Posts

This is a dumb question but I am paranoid and I would appreciate the help. I am flying this week and I was wondering if it effects the pills when they are run through x ray machines. I know it says keep the pills away from light but I don't know what the xray machine does to it. thanks

You can ask them to check that bag by hand if you are feeling paranoid about it. I'd keep it in the carryon if they allow that just in case the luggage gets lost or delayed.

I work at the airport and can tell you that Accutane will not be affected when sent through the X Ray machines. Just about all medicine is fine going through X ray. But as posted earlier if you feel more comfortable you can have it checked by hand but it will take a lot longer and will probaly tick a few screeners off hehe.
