Question Shipping Medications from UK To USA

Has anyone ever shipped medications from UK-USA previously? Or is it a totally stupid idea? I have friends who work for the NHS and will be able to write me some prescriptions rather than buying it from here; or is it just not worth the risk?

It is always going to be more trouble than its worth.

The "least bad" thing that could happen is that they're confiscated, the worst is that, depending on what the drugs are, you could be charged with trafficking, which could lead, potentially, to you being deported and banned from returning.

All round, it's a bad idea.

I believe what you are asking is illegal as you are not a UK resident and some of the meds may not be allowed into the US. Please do not ask our members to encourage you to break the law. If found out your friends would lose their jobs and probably be prosecuted.
