New York Prison & Jail Visitation, Phones, Packages & MailTopics / Information relating to the New York Department of Corrections and local / county Jail visitation, phone calls, mail, inmate care packages, etc.
most likely they will not let you take them in with you
I would call the specific prison you will got to and ask them the procedure-likely you will have to see a Doctor inside to get them represcribed for you--and plan that you will have to do that at every stop along the way-reception etc.

I would bring documentation from the Doctor that prescribes it anyway detailing the medication, dosage, time taken & what it's used for (your diagnosis, etc.), how long you've been taking it. It might help. Call the jail & see if you can call medical - maybe you can bring some in a prescription bottle? But most likely they will have to prescribe for you. Given you're only going to be there for 10 days, by the time you get to go to medical & they okay it (IF they do, medical conditions can be bad in county jail) you may be out of jail already, so you May have to go without. Make sure you have some left at home so you can start taking it again when you get out. Good Luck!
