I remembered when I was in Taipei in 2006, I got flu and went to the pharmacy. I asked them to give me paracetamol with the help of my chinese friends, it was so difficult! I have no idea either the wrong term we gave them or the different term they used!
Please bring enough supply of your personal medicine. I may forgive you if you don't bring the supplement, but big no-no if you forget this.
Put in specific bag/compartment so when you travel it is easy to tell the immigration/customs/police etc officer either the one you bring is illegal drug or vice versa. It is adviceable if you could bring a document that prove that the drugs/medicines you bring is for your health and legal.
