There is no need for labeling of the medication in a carry on bag.
Good listener and love to read.
It the medication is over the counter no, but prescription drugs yes.

The TSA rules state that all prescription medications must be in their original containers at the time they go through security. The name on the container must match the name of the ticketed passenger. It is illegal to transport medicine that does not belong to you, so make sure your full name appears on your prescription bottle before heading to the airport.
However the majority of the time TSA will not question if it is not in prescription bottle, however you may get an over zealous TSA who might, especially if it is a controlled substance.
