I will be traveling to India and staying around a month here and there...
My question is in regards to my current DR prescribed medications
Will it be a customs or issue with me bringing them along (they are needed)

thanks friends

no. I've been to India 7 times and have never had a problem. I take two meds for my thyroid and I keep the bottles in my purse or carryon. keep your meds in their prescription bottles.

You should also consider carrying a letter from your doctor which lists the medications you are taking, and the dosage.

And bring enough to last throughout the trip, and then some extra, just in case.

PS : And in original packaging, if not too bulky.
