Is it illegal to import prescription drugs?
First: NO, it is perfectly legal to import prescription drugs
for which you have a prescription.
I think what you meant was: "Is it illegal to buy drugs from
another country without prescription and import them?"
For America, typically yes, especially for stimulants and
painkillers, which are always controlled substances because people
always are trying to get their hands on them. See
I don't know how accurate the material is, but you can only
import an FDA unapproved drug if you have a valid medical reason,
and I guess the FDA expressly wants a "doctors note" to say it's
OK, but not a prescription. But if you're importing a drug for an
FDA approved reason, it says it's illegal.
