    Sir, on a lighter note. Any tips from those who are on ARVs and travels a lot. I have an upcoming trip to Cebu with office mates who does not know my status, and this is the first time (a a pos) to travel via plane. How do you handle the meds? Do you take them out of the original bottle and put it on a non-labeled one? Does the security ask questions if they see meds inside your carry-on? I’m really worried on bringing the meds with me, without divulging they are ARVs. Hope someone can share.
