I'm not sure what medication you have, but you should be okay and won't
need a prescription/letter from your doctor, if the medication is in the
original pharmacy container with your name and the strength/dosage clearly
stated on the label.  You should also declare the medicine on your
passenger arrival card.  More info here:

If your medicine contains pseudoephidrine they may still confiscate it -
they really don't like pseudoephidrine here.
