    Flying with PCT

    I will be starting PCT next week, and I also need to fly south that week. How have you guys dealt with taking your PCT with you on a plane? The only things that are going to be questionable are the Nolva and Toremifene. I will only be there for a maximum of 4 days, so I will need to take 4 Nolva pills (they're dosed at 50mg), and 4 Toremifene pills. How should I take this along withe me? I was thinking of crushing up the Nolva and getting some Tylenol capsules, empty them out, and replace with Nolva. Same with the Toremifene.

    Any thoughts?

    You should have planned better. I wouldn't risk it. Just wait the extra 4 days to start your pct

    haha, funny! But seriously, u might be over thinking it a little... I travel (although domestic usa) and I have a shaving kit bag with all types of meds in it (I'm old) and I have never had TSA show any attention to it... I've even traveled with my test and a few rigs... I'm not saying to do it but I don't think it's that big a deal. They are looking for other things bro

    Hard to plan when it wasn't part of the plan. This is a spur of the moment trip for work. BTW, I'm not sure if I was clear or not, but this will be a domestic flight (USA).

    Do you really think they would check inside my Tylenol capsules?

    Thanks, bsh. This will also be a domestic USA flight; sorry I was unclear in the original post. I figured I could take extra precaution, and put them in Tylenol (or other OTC med) capsules. If I put a very small 'indicator' on the outside of the capsule to mark them, then throw them in with, say, the other 100 or so capsules in the container, do you think they would look through and open every single capsule just on a whim?

    No they would probably not search everything but how lucky do you feel? Really just delay it by a few days wont be a big deal and 100% safer.

    True, and thanks lovbyts. I'm not 100% sure the exact day I'll be flying, and I was going to take my last pin on Friday. I guess I'll just plan to possibly extend the cycle for a few days if need be and take my last pin the night before I fly out.

    There you go, even a better idea. Good thinking.

    Just FYI, TSA looks for things out of place! If u go to some elaborate efforts to conceal something u may just be drawing attention to it! Some pills in a shaving kit is not something that is going to draw attention! If they did look, which I don't think they would, they wouldn't know what what the hell they were looking at anyways! They don't have time to mess with pill or anything of the sort... Think about it if they looked at everyone's meds nobody would make it to the plane... Just my .02

    Always just use common sense... If u have a few things, throw them in ur bag along with ur personal hygiene stuff... No big deal! If on the other hand, u carrying a bag FULL of of boxes of meds and ur not a pharma sales rep they might take a look at Ya, hahaha...

    Well, I believe I have an alternative plan lined out, as I stated above, but just out of curiosity, what's the worst that would happen to me if they did find a few pills of Nolva and Toremifene?

    Trust me bro, these ppl that work at the airport don't know anything other than what they've been told to look for... Like I said they are looking for narcotics, bombs, guns and knifes, etc... They are not versed in pharma stuff! If u have a shit ton of products, Ya ur going to red flag! But a few tabs in ur carry on with ur hygiene stuff they could careless... They are very busy screening hundreds if not thousands of ppl a day! They are not the sharpest btw...

    Understood, but assuming that they DO actually know what they're looking at, and they find the Nolva and Toremifene, what's the worst that would happen? Just a confiscation? A fine?

    That I can't tell u non attorney here... But i will say, if ur this paranoid about it don't, I repeat DONT take it with... Sometimes in life u just have to be quick on ur feet so to speak! And if a situation arises u must improvise! Btw - I work closely with someone that is on the board for home land security so I do a little about the subject or I would have never mentioned anything! That's as far as I'll go with it.. Safe travels bro...

    I don't see a big deal. i would travel with the PCT. This country is a pill popping society.. if the TSA where to worry about pills you would have to get to the airport 5 hours before your flight. i travel a lot for work, i always put my vitamins in a zip lock for the week..

    Here in europe i can travel with meds, nobody is going to ask me why i have a few pharma pills in my bag. My company even gives a med travel kit full of all sorts of meds, paracetamol, ibuprofen, anti-hystaminics etc etc

    If you have an old prescription bottle put them in that when traveling.

    No. It isn't. I have never been asked about pills. I throw everything in one baggie and call it good.

    In a pinch ar-r chems in travel size mouthwash/whitening rinse bottles have worked well..

    Only things I've ever been pulled out of line for, twice, are protein powder and ground up oats.. both tested using their drug/explosives kits

    That being said, no point in taking an unnecessary risk

    I've flown before with nolva from another research chem company in my checked bag. Looking back, I probably would've held off with it. But that being said, if you're going to try to "hide" it, don't make it look obvious that you're hiding something. Often if you just check it like you would a bottle of shaving cream, they won't even think something is up.

    Apologies for having to bump this thread. I just got news from my boss that we have a conference in Orlando in a couple of weeks. Yes, I will be on PCT during this time.

    Soo...I will be flying out on a Wednesday and returning on Friday. My initial thought is to take my PCT Tuesday night, as scheduled (I always take my PCT meds at night), then on Wednesday morning before I fly out, SKIP Thursday, then start taking them again Friday when I get back. In your opinion, how much would this screw up my PCT, if at all? Obviously, it would throw my blood levels off a bit but, would it have any effect on keeping/losing gains if I were to go, say, 48 hours without taking my PCT? And should I 'double up' the dosage at all somewhere in there?

    Do you guys think that it would have any effect on my net gains?

    And should I double up the dose before/after travel? Or just carry on with my regular dose?

    I think you are overthinking it. A couple of days is not going to be a big deal. Heck if you are that worried just extend your pct a couple days. It won't matter either way
