Apple Cider Vinegar for Medical Reasons in a 16 ounce bottle

I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar lately to fight GERD and Acid Reflux. Can I carry on a larger bottle of it for medical reasons? Probably no bigger than 16 ounces.

I have read that cough syrup is allowed in bigger bottles than 3.4 ounces.

Just wondering what others have done.

Thanks.

To use the medical liquids exemption you need to inform them at document check and before entering screening so they can move you to additional screening line. Will take extra time so build at least 30 minutes more into your schedule.

To qualify see here: Disabilities and Medical Conditions | Transportation Security Administration (tsa.gov)

Its possible at US airports, but then youre set up for the item and perhaps yourself and your other items to get an additional screening at times. The key thing is to pre-announce to the TSA screeners that you have liquids as part of a medical exemption to the liquid/gels/aerosol restrictions.

If you can get a doctor to write a note on their professional letterhead that this is part of your suggested medical treatment for the issue, that may help too.
