Are you trying to find the best pill box for travel? Overwhelmed by all the options? The following is a comprehensive guide to our favorite pill box for travel. 

The sheer number of options out there makes going through thousands of reviews extremely frustrating. Look over the reviews of what may appeal to you, then make an informed purchasing decision. Personally we love versatility and something that fits our particular meds. This is most important for us, and after all the pill boxes we have gone through to find the perfect one, we have donated the others to a local charity so that others can find inexpensive options. The pillbox graveyard of our misses is no more and they are going to good use! 

First some important information. We get asked all the time: "What do I do with my medications when I travel to a foreign country? Do I need the prescription bottles? What if I need more medication if I am delayed? Can I travel with my medication?" Our advice is that the CDC has a great traveler’s health page to point you in the right direction of most questions. It is a great resource and we always start there. 

Here are a few tips that you might find helpful from the TSA:

Reported this year – tragic loss of life due to hotel carbon monoxide poisoning. We bought a new safety device every traveler should consider.

Reported this year – tragic loss of life due to hotel carbon monoxide poisoning. We have a new safety device every traveler should consider. 

We've been reading these tragic stories about people who've died on vacation or traveling away from home for work in a hotel room because the hotel didn't have its act together, had a carbon monoxide leak and that's a silent killer. Recently, an American man was found dead inside a room at a popular Bahamas resort where another three tourists tragically died in their rooms from carbon monoxide poisoning earlier this year.

Other people fortunately survived the carbon monoxide poisoning at that hotel. And the weird thing is that there were people who had gone to the doctor or the hospital the day before complaining of symptoms that carbon monoxide symptoms manifest like so many other things that people don't even know, medical professionals don't automatically think, oh, wow, wonder, could this be carbon monoxide poisoning? There are enough symptoms that are similar to other illnesses that they could miss something that's more relevant in most people's cases. Either way it's something that is preventable. 

From the CDC: 

What is Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide, or “CO,” is an odorless, colorless gas that can kill you.
