    Hi,

    If you have time before departing, I would suggest contacting customs in advance.

    It very likely is OK, so their reply will help you feel assured.

    Sorry I cannot give a more helpful answer!

    Did you ask if it would be ok to bring generic adderall into Japan?  How was it going through customs?  Did you declare your medications?  I didn’t anticipate having to worry about this and now I’m super worried! Leaving next week …

    Hi,

    I talked with a person here in Japan who came with a group of students.  They contacted the authorities before coming and said that the process was really fast and just included sending the names of the medications (and pictures of the prescription I think).  But one person in the group uses medicine that is not allowed in Japan and they are just going without their meds while here.

    I’m not sure where you’re from, but this info may help:
