It would be best to bring the 3 month supply with you. All medication should be in complete original packaging and clearly labelled with the pharmacy sticker.
Bring a complete list of all the medications you are taking ( preferably a pharmacy print out) along with some copies of your medical chart such as Xray, MRI , CT scan, Diagnosis , allergies and complications. This is particularly important in case you need treatment out of the country. Talk to both your doctor and pharmacist to let them know in case any officials want to verify that the doctor prescribed the medications. Bring the address and phone number of the doctor and pharmacy. A written note would be helpful explaining that they prescribed and dispensed a 3 month supply due to your trip. Of course I am assuming that you are bringing some heavy duty medications with you but with any narcotic it is best to be prepared.
Travelling with prescribed substances is usually not an issue however be careful about over the counter medications. Here in Canada you can purchase 222's and Tylenol #1 from the pharmacy but transporting them over the boarder into USA without a prescription is illegal.
Carry on the bag containing the medications. When you get to where you are going you may want to keep some of the meds separate from each other in case you lose any. This way you have others to fall back on. Most importantly is keeping them in the original packaging
