Most likely they're not going to care, I doubt your meds will even get a second glance. If you were carrying narcotics (as in prescription pain killers, not cocaine et al) that might be another story. Maybe. *shrug*

I carry tons of free Clarinex samples everywhere I go! And I've yet to have a problem with them. Keep in mind that in many countries, the authorities have the right to search you for drugs at any time (including walking down the street with your pack) but I've never heard of this happening, and I'm willing to bet that they really won't give a crap about anything that's in a blister pack or any other original packaging.
