My plan is not to lose my carry on. If I lose it, I have bigger problems
than my medication :)

That said, if your medication is very important to your health, have it
in your clothes. Checking it in is a distant backup to having someone
fedex you new medication overnight (which I've had to do for someone
after luggage was delayed 2 days with medication inside, or my own
personal luggage delayed 6 times, up to one week once, but I never put
medication in it).
