Re: Purchasing drugs overseas?

"....a US doc can't prescribe an unapproved drug", "...the 90 day supply often mentioned is disclaimed on the Customs site."

I am confused now Zeke. I keep on reading that a 90 day supply of medicine for personal use (as long as it is not a controlled substance) can be ordered or brought in from overseas, even if the medicine isn't approved of in the US. Whether a prescription is required depends on whether the country of origen requires a prescriptiion. For example, many drugs that require prescriptions in Switzerland don't require prescriptions in Thailand.
Also, I thought US doctors can prescribe medicines that aren't approved for use in the US. My psychiatrist checked on this and then prescribed me amisulpride which doesn't have US approval.
Can anybody clear up this confusion. Is there an official and unofficial US Customs policy concerning medicines?
