Valparin Chrono 500 and possible side effects?

I take Valparin Chrono 500 and lately I feel so tired.

Valparin and International Traveling

My son had a seizure in 2012 (when he was 2 years of age) and our doctor at the time advised that he take Valparin Syrup 3mL twice daily for 3 years. One year has already passed & he has two years of treatment time remaining to continue taking this syrup. However, now we have to immigrate to Canada and I would like to find out whether we can bring 2 years worth of this medication (approx. 50 bottles) there? Or even at least 1 year quota. Will we get questioned in custom clearance or anywhere else? I would take the prescription from the pediatrician but I'm really nervous about how to handle this situation when traveling internationally. Kindly advise me on this.
