> That can be very dangerous. I'm not sure what teh law is as far as bringing medication with you when you enter, that would be one thing to research. You might also try to call and find a her a doctor to see so she has an appointment when she arrives so she can get care right away.

You are allowed to bring in 90 days worth of prescription drugs imported into the US, assuming you are a US citizen -- actually I think that applies to non-US citizens who are currently taking medication.

A quote from the US embassy in Stockholm, for example:

"You may bring medication into the U.S. for personal use only. You cannot bring in medicine for friends or family. To be able to bring any kind of medication into the U.S. a doctor's note, or the original prescription, is required. The doctor's note should state the name and quantity of the medicine you are bringing into the U.S. It cannot exceed the quantity needed for your stay in the U.S. The note must also affirm that the medication is only for your personal use. It is also important to keep the medication in the originally dispensed-container."

This is for a 6 month stay like for Canadians, not permanent residency, so if your mother, I don't know what country, is applying to for permanent residency, it will be a longer process than I assume titrating off of the Valium in the first place and it will be gone anyhow. At least 90 days or more considering bureacracy, which is the greater worry here.

I assume you mean Diazepam, Valium.
