Although rarely requested by authorities, you may wish to carry a physician’s letter with you that authorizes you to carry your medication on board your flight. Some patients also pack a written prescription for their HAE therapy to have in-hand if needed.
Traveling, being away from your treating physician, or being faced with going to an unfamiliar Emergency Department for an HAE attack can be nerve-wracking.
Click on either link below to download a sample letter that you can take to your HAE treating physician. Ask him/her to fill it out, personalizing it with your own HAE treatment plan specifics, and add his/her emergency contact information so that you can carry the letter with you – whether on a long distance trip or just to the local Emergency Department.
