How can I carry my pills without all the bottles?

Asked by seekingwolf (9998 points ) January 29th, 2014

Okay, so I’ve had weight loss surgery (lost over 35 lb so far, very happy) and while I’m off a couple medications, I am still needing my rx antidepressants and a lot of supplements, which means for a LOT more pills.

I’ve taken rx pills for years and either took them in the morning or evening. However, now I need to take pills in the afternoon.

I have several bottles but don’t want to lug them everywhere. I want to pick out the pills that I need and put them into a small pill carrier and take them to work. It’s hard for me to take a bag of stuff to work because there’s no place where I can put it (I don’t have an office or even a locker) so I definitely don’t want to take my pill bottles with me and risk having them stolen or something.

However, I’m concerned about the legality of this. Isn’t it illegal to transport your rx pills outside of the original bottle?

BTW, if it matters, I am not on anything addictive. I don’t take pain meds. Just the same old antidepressants that I have been on since I was a young teen. And now tons of supplements.
