Copaxone and high blood pressure

In addition, I have lost about ...

Going through customs with copaxone

Hi- I am getting ready for a trip to Costa RIca in a couple weeks. I have a copy of my prescription for security on the US side of things, but I am worried that Costa Rica customs may not be so understanding about someone bringing filled syringes into the country.
Has anyone done this? Any advice?
Thank you!
