Depends exactly how much you're bringing in of course, but there's no rule that says you can't bring in personal amounts I don't think.
You can always ship some extra over, think you just need to write it on the form as its (obviously) counted as a medicine

A shop in the UK would tell you 3 packets, don't know how far that rule is applied. You might be able to find the answer here - AQIS
