Hello, I am finally moving to the states on the 20th this month I have however a question about bringing prescription meds with me. I have pcos for which I have been taking a specific type of the birth control pill. My doctor kindly prescribed 5 packs or 15 months worth of the pill, which is obviously way more than the 90 days worth of they talk about on the TSA website. I probably won't need all of it as we are thinking about starting a family soon with my husband, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Where I come from, we get the pills in strips with the name of the meds on the back of it. My name is not on it and my prescription was a qr code that became disfunctional once scanned at the pharmacy. How should I pack this? I'm worried they will be suspicious at the amount and confiscate it. Im thinking spliting it between my carry-on and my two checked begs, that way I have at least something left when I arrive? But that would probably seem even more suspicious to them 😕 I am also bringing some other meds, some prescription and some not, mainly pain killers used for period pain/back pain, allergies etc. but don't have the prescription for that either. I wouldn't even bother bringing these but I'd rather have it in case I need it and can avoid a (expensive) trip to doctor's in the states, at least for a while. Any advice or personal experience will be greatly appreciated 🙂 Thank you!
Hello, I'm a Hungarian citizen and take a couple of different prescription drugs for epilepsy and in Hungary I don't have to pay anything for them since I have public insurance. But healthcare is very different in the US and I'm concerned about being able to pay for my medication. Does anyone know if I'd be able to sign up for insurance, or what type of visa do I need to apply for in order to be eligible for insurance (we're planning on possibly applying for K-1 with my boyfriend), or how does it even work? Thanks in advance!
