    Just curious!

    Can someone travel to another country, to seek HRT treatment? if so, and assuming the doctor has written a prescription for testosterone enough for one year or two perhaps! Can the patient/client then purchase the medicine and bring it with him/her to the US?

    There really isn't any benefit to this unless you are trying to save money. If the drug that you can get in another country is not FDA approved in the US, you can't bring it in no matter what paperwork you are carrying: https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/det...RRSVh2aw%3D%3D

    In addition to what jpkman said, importing a drug with a prescription is limited to 90 days supply.

    Actually this is your answer (http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel/va...restricted.xml; see under Medication section)

    U.S. residents entering the United States at international land borders who are carrying a validly obtained controlled substance (other than narcotics such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or LSD), are subject to certain additional requirements. If a U.S. resident wants to bring in a controlled substance (other than narcotics such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or LSD) but does not have a prescription for the substance issued by a U.S.-licensed practitioner (e.g., physician, dentist, etc.) who is registered with, and authorized by, the Drug Enforcement Administration to prescribe the medication, the individual may not import more than 50 dosage units of the medication into the United States. If the U.S. resident has a prescription for the controlled substance issued by a DEA registrant, more than 50 dosage units may be imported by that person, provided all other legal requirements are met.
