Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
it is not illegal to take medications from another country
but you do need to have a prescription for the medication.
some people take their US prescription and get them filled in Canada if it is cheaper to get the medications in Canada and then bring the medications back to the US.
what medications are you getting from another country?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
