I am from the US and I have taken Prozac for many years and when I first came into the country I brought ALL of my meds (Xanax too) without written prescriptions and no problems whatsoever any time I've come in through the airport. However now I need more and am not going back to the US until October 17th.

My mom can ship me mine from the US but now reading all this stuff online it makes me nervous. Has anyone had their medications shipped through Fed-Ex, DHL, etc without any trouble from US? If it is in the bottle from Walgreens I would think that is an official record of the prescription. TIA!

You'll need an attested prescription that will have to be shipped along with the meds (no more than 3 months supply) otherwise they will get confiscated by customs. Too much money and hassle. Best to see a doctor here and buy the meds locally, both are available.
