I will be travelling to USA with prescribed medicine and I found vague information online. U.S. Customs and Border Protection website says:
A valid prescription or doctors note is required on all medication entering the U.S.
But there is no information on how a valid prescription looks like. What should the doctor's note contain?
Also, I'm not even sure that my doctor speaks english, what if she refuses to write me a note?
In my case, the pills are packaged like this:
The only difference is that the labels are in my local language. Do you think it would be possible that the customs officer would just wave me through? Do they really check every single piece of over the counter medication?
UPDATE: TSA didn't even look at my medicine, even though they did a full bag search for unrelated reasons. Immigration officer didn't ask for medicine either.
