Our experiences with Aduana is that they sometimes notice prescription meds and sometimes not.

Will you be bringing in only personal meds and only meds in quantities for reasonable personal use?
If they notice your meds, they sometimes only check the bottle to see what med, and if it has an official looking pharmacy label.
Sometimes when checking the label, the look to see what quantities of each type of pill your are importing. If you are importing a large number - like 10 bottles - of each med, they may question your intentions.
Sometimes when inspecting your meds, they decide that they want to see signed Doctor's prescriptions for key meds.
Sometimes when inspecting your meds, they decide that they want to see signed Doctor's prescriptions for every bottle and every med.
If they don't like your answer to each or every item listed above, then they are permitted to confiscate your meds.
It is up to them as to what combination of the above actions they choose to take.
If you want to guarantee that you can bring in every bottle and every med, then have the meds only in official original prescription bottles, and bring individual prescriptions for every med - signed by your doctor - to cover every base.
