I think your question is difficult to answer because there are various issues but if your question is whether he can import the drug, if it's prescribed to him legally there then he can bring it into the country.

If he gets it by any other means than a prescription then US laws prohibit bringing such medications into US soil.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
