TSA medication questions?
You didn't read it thoroughly enough. The TSA rule about the size of containers of liquids applies only to liquids in your carry-on luggage and medicines are exempt from that rule. Medicines means stuff that's medically necessary, so it had better be in a container with the prescription label on it. If they are prescribed medicines, you can bring all the ones you need. Powder is not restricted. Bring all you want. The TSA does not care about the size of containers of liquids in your checked luggage. The airline might. Its website will say. They might do special screening of almost anything. It will save time, if that happens, if you have all these things in their own bags. You'll have a bag for your standard allowance of liquids which is all you can fit in a one-quart bag. If you are also carrying liquid prescribed medicine, put it in its own bag.
Liquid medication is exempt from the liquid/gel rule. You can take as much liquid medication as you need - you just need to show it to the security officer at the screening point. Powders can be 12oz before they warrant additional screening; again though, medications are exempt. Medication can, and absolutely should, be taken in your carry-on bag. Liquid medications have to be taken out, along with any other liquid/gel items (which should all be in a ziploc baggie - see https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/liquids-rule for details). Your liquid medication does not have to be in that baggie. Your allergy medication can be in its original container, a travel container, it can opened or not. They don't care. It is not a threat to the plane, and that's all they care about. It doesn't matter if your Miralax is food or medication - it is allowed on the plane. It can be in your carry-on. If it is more than 12oz, then it might be subject to additional screening, but there likely wouldn't be trouble if so.
Only liquids are restricted and your OTC meds do not have to be in their original containers. Medically necessary liquids in amounts over the 3.4oz/100ml are allowed - this includes things like contact lens solutions and cough syrup in reasonable quantities. You just have to declare them at Security
TSA says you can't bring more than 3.4oz of a non-medication liquid. You can bring on as much liquid medication for your flight and a few days of coverage in the event of a baggage delay. This does not need to be in a zip loc bag but you have to inform the TSA agent about the excess medication. - you should have a copy of the prescription and it's better if the medication is properly labeled.

You do not need to worry about powder or pill form medication.
Powders you can take as much of. (Don't be surprised if your powders is selected for inspection since there is powdered explosive) A number of explosives come in liquid and gel form.
Rules about liquids are rules about LIQUIDS. A powder is not a liquid. Get it now? And the l in ml is a small letter, not a capital. The whole reason this rule came in was that some Muslim wannabe terrorists planned to blow up some planes in mid-air using liquid explosive in soft drink bottles brought on to the flights in their carry-on baggage. The British police found out about this early and put them under surveillance to gather more evidence, then arrested them all at the airport. I remember that day as I was flying and there was this sudden new rule, nobody explained why, but now we know why - it all became apparent when the gang went on trial. Three were convicted of conspiracy to murder by causing explosions and sentenced to life. I trust they are not enjoying spending over 30 years each as, ahem, guests of Her Majesty. That's the reason for it - and it is about LIQUIDS in hand luggage, NOTHING else. The rule is there to prevent anyone trying that again.
TSA is unlikely going to do anything about medications. If you have any liquid medications that are over 30z/100ml you need to have a doctors note or a copy of the rx. Usually this applies to children, I don't think there are a lot of adults who are on liquid medications. Powder is fine. That all being said, if you are traveling abroad, you really need to have a copy of your rx with you to prove it is your medicine.
I'll actually make this simple for you Allergy pills - No Issue in Carry-On and you don't need to disclose it or do anything special Miralax Power - If the container is 12oz or less you are fine and don't need to do anything special. If it is over 12oz you should have no issues brining it in your Carry-On but need to disclose it. Any liquid medication - No size or quantity limitations on different medications, but must be disclosed before screening. In General - While there are no size limitations with medications are limited to medically necessary. And while that is inherently vague, basically anything obviously for personal use will generally not have an issue. Just be sure you disclose them before you get to the screening point.
LIQUID is LIQUID Powder is powder NOT very complicated. Medication is medication. TSA agents are not pharmacists. Does this count as food or medicine? I could see it as both. WHY WHY does it matter? It is allowed on the plane. TSA is not medication control. NORMAL amounts of personal use medication is not an issue. Looking like a moving drug store is something else and not a TSA concern. Your liquids in carry on must be in the small bottles. Large bottles can go in your checked bag. Medication is MEDICATION. It helps to keep them in original bottles. Medications are specifically NOT included in the liquids restrictions. TSA can refuse anything they think is suspicious. It can take time to test the contents. You might miss your flight. TOO BAD for you . Airline nor security need to give a free next flight. If you have checked luggage seriously how much laxative powder must you carry on board? It is allowed. You make your stop at security fast or slow by how you pack and what you pack in your carry on. you can speed it up keeping things sorted and LABELLED. You can slow up having assorted bottles cans tubes or whatever filled with stuff that the TSA either guess what it is or tests it. WHY are you trying so hard to complicate something rather simple. Medication is Medication and reasonable quantities are allowed. LIQUIDS not medication go with all your other liquids in small bottle in ONE bag. Powder is Powder and can easily make a mess if your container breaks. Package them well.for travel purposes. TSA can refuse anything they cannot identify. Major reason to keep in original containers your powders. TSA is not the pill police. You have rather strange definition of a FOOD item. Most on the planet do not consider powders as a food. Food additive is a better term. Pack your carry on assuming it will be emptied and searched. It may not be most bags are not searched thoroughly some are. Most pass the inspection in few seconds. Some that desire to play games with bags of powders and assorted bottles of liquids claiming they are .... can be held for hours while it is verified. Your choice to have a fast pass or deliberately complicate it and risk missing your flight. The items you have mentioned are not illegal and can be allowed on board. The TSA agent that checks you makes final decision. If they cannot figure out whatiit is they say no.
you need to ask your doctor or a pharnnacist these question and ask the airlines the last question
