    Please visit Eli Lilly's information about traveling with Forteo at I hope this helps to answer your questions.

    I was on Forteo for 2 years and did a lot of traveling. You just use the tote kit that you received through your doctor's office and put 2 small ice packs in it. If you fly, you will need to take a doctor's note and the box it came in. I hope this information helps.
