Does anyone know much about NZ customs and how strict they are?

I was planning to order some Melatonin online from a United States website and ship it here to NZ, but it's a prescription only drug here in NZ. What would be the chances that it gets seized? What would happen if it were to get seized?

Cogswell: It's not necessary, I do get enough sleep every night (which is around 7 hours), and so I don't think a doctor would prescribe it to me.

I'm just trying to get a better sleeping pattern, sleep longer and have a deeper sleep so my body can release more Growth Hormone and repair/recover more readily after weight lifting.
I'd like to sleep for about 9 to 10 hours a night, starting from like 11pm, instead of the 1am bedtime I have now.

If a doctor will not prescribe it to you then why do you think what you are trying to do is good for you. Yes its advertised "on the net" for people for weight lifting for exactly what you have said but do you know 100% its good for you? There will be a good reason why its a restricted drug.

Have you talked to your gym/trainer/family/doctor about why you are thinking to take this. I am pretty sure everyone will say no.
