Interview Date Dec 10 :) Woohoo!!

Im curious about my birth control. It's prescribed. each box has my name on it. I have 7 months worth.
Can I take more with me because I dont know when I'll be back to Montreal or if I have some "no travel" time period that's mandatory.

I wouldn't advice walking with more than 3 months worth, even if it's prescribed. What's the name of it?

I ask cause I'm a pharmacist back home.

When I visit over the summers on my J1 visa to work at a summer camp, I usually have six months worth with me just in case I lose some or whatever and it's never caused me any problems. I have it in my suitcase not my hand luggage (apart from the pack I am currently using). Hope that helps!

You can always send some to the US address if you are afraid of carrying them all with you. Last time I had 8 months supply with me and it wasn't an issue.

Be careful with sending it via mail. Last time I was in the USA my former husband had to go through a lot of hoops with UPS to have my meds mailed (was an anti depressant, non narcotic). I had to send UPS two forms of ID and a copy of an existing perscription as well as a note from the doctor who prescribed it for me In order for them to deliver it to me. Plus he had to pay an extra fee and I was the only one who could accept the package and then pay the brokerage fees. Even then they didn't garuntee that inspectors wouldn't see It as "trafficking" Not worth it if you can manage to bring a supply.

Oops. I forgot to mention that I used patches. I'm sure that the x-rays at the airport can detect pills so it may cause some kind of issue. I'm sorry for incomplete answer.

To avoid issues, I would make sure that your medications are labeled properly in original packaging/containers with your pharmacy's label and instructions for use.

To assure your compliance, you should review the CBP guidelines on importing medications into the US:

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Thanks everyone!

My pills are Tricyclin LO

What will i do when I run out? Will they even have those pills in the states? Will I have to get a prescription in Philly..? or how long before I can come back to montreal anyway. I can visit here and schedule a doc appointment...

Once you start your AOS process you should apply for work authorization card and advance parole (travel abroad document). Within 3 months you should get both things. I believe they have those pills in the US most medicines have just different names in different countries. Also check with your fiance if you can be added to his insurance plan.
