DISNEY! DISNEY!

Flying with medication

I've read that you can put medicines in your carry on, but they need to be in a quart sized bag.  My concern is my son has this medicine called diastat rectal gel (for seizures so we need it on us at all times) that won't fit in the bag.  Does security make exceptions?  Do I need a note from his doctor or anything?  I've tried looking online but so far, am overwhelmed with all the information.  Thank you ladies!

My DH has flown for work.  He is a diabetic and takes insulin.  He has a case that has room for an ice pack, syringes, tester, etc.  He has never had any issue with it on a plane.  He takes several other meds also.  He carries all of them in a carry-on bag and usually the clothes he will need(99% of the time he goes for only a couple days) in a carry-on sized duffel bag.  He always carries the full bottle with the prescription label on it.
