Just be sensible, keep the drugs in the original packaging, declare them at known "death/life sentence" countries.
Get a letter from your GP stating why you need to carry x months supply.
I do remote medical work and have hand carried drugs, Prescription/non prescription/controlled drugs round the world, including to most of the "Hardcore" countries.
If you have decent paper work from your GP (An official looking stamp always goes a long way) it will get you through
Worst case scenario you have you drugs taken off you, with a little bit of effort you can touch base with a local Doctor who can write out a script for you, maybe for a price but, thats life
To counter being left without your regular prescription split your drug stash up in your luggage, hand luggage/hold/panniers/tent pockets etc
Uk GPs are buggers however for not giving you more than a couple of months prescriptions. Don't leave it till the last week to rock up and demand six months of pills.................Dr won't be keen.......If you are on a schedule get cracking and at the first opportunity in the next country touch base with a GP and upgrade your stash
