Bring my own medication

Will I have any problems bringing in high blood pressure medication and Vitamin B complex (5-day supply) into Thailand?

Bring at least a two-week supply. You might end up in a hospital with a fractured leg and having your own meds will be one less point of stress.

No problem with those meds. But keep everything in the original containers.

Don't show up with a little baggie full of loose pills.

The vitamin B isn't a prescription drug and is only a nutritional supplement, so is not a consideration. As for the blood pressure medication, it would be highly unlikely to cause any difficulty at all. Just take it in the original package and if you're really concerned about it, take your prescription with you also to set your mind at rest.
