Prescription Medication

6 years ago
Hi there! I am considering traveling to Sao Paulo for a job from January to the end of April. I currently take 2 narcotic medications that are controlled substances in the US. My concern is continuing these medications while I'm abroad. How would I find a doctor to write the same prescription for me, and how does insurance work in Brazil? Would my prescription from the US be able to be filled abroad? I'm assuming I would have my doctors office contact the BR doctor. I don't want to buy my medication off the street. Thank you for anyone willing to help me with my questions!
