How do i carry my insulin in plane?

I am flying to florida in a few weeks and am having a bit of a nightmare deciding what to do with my insulin!!! I have contacted the sirline and informed them i will be carring needles and insulin and have a letter from my GP, I need to take 15 pens plus extras with me but if i leave them in their sealed boxes they will not fit into the clear plastic bag 20cms x 20cms that the airline say all liquids must be in. I have purchased two frio bags which will keep the insulin at the required temperature but these will not fit into the bag either. So do i put them in the frio bags and hope that they let me on the plane without the plastic bag, therefore keeping insulin cool for the whole journey, leave them in their sealed boxes or take them out and put the individual pens in the plastic bag and not keep them cool for the journey ??? help???

Yes you can carry them, But I really wonder if you do need to carry so much. YOu can take the prescription instead to buy the same from where you are going. I usually carry my insulin in portable cases with ice bags to keep them cool.
