Travel with HRT Meds

In 2010 I’m going to be moving to the UK and then Japan for work. I have checked with the embassies and I think I have this under control, but I am hoping you guys will let me know if I am overlooking something.

Medications in question:
Anastrozole (Arimidex)
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)
Testosterone Cypionate

Doesn’t seem to give a shit at all. The testosterone is controlled but falls under the Schedule 4 Part II exemption as it is a medical product for personal use. The rest seems to be a non issue. Especially if you have a note from your doc and labeled prescriptions. Just walk right on through customs. For some reason this just seems too easy…

Doesn’t care about the meds as long as it is less than 1 months supply, but I will be bringing at least 3 months with me. Also, the syringes are a problem. It seems the solution to both problems is to fill out a Yakkan Shoumei and have it approved ahead of time. In theory, with proper supporting documentation the Yakkan Shoumei would be approved and with it I would have minimal trouble with customs. Has anybody here done this? How big of a pain in the ass was it?

Any help/info will be appreciated.
