I live in the U.S. under a F-1 visa, and I have a bad sciatica. When I returned home (Japan), I saw a doctor, who prescribed pregabalin, which is classified in the U.S. under Schedule V. I will return back to the U.S. in three days, when I will have two weeks' worth of the drug. How can I bring the medicine back there? Can I do so at all?
A: When you come to the United States with medications, you fall under the authority of FDA, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents operating the nation's airports. ... A rule of thumb: Bring no more than a 90-day supply of medication.
