Whilst I can't answer your specific question about oxazepam, the general rules about taking medicines into other countries are:

* contact the embassy of the countries you are visiting to ensure that medicine is legal there;
* carry a letter from your prescribing doctor that details the amount you are carrying and specifying it is for personal use only; and
* leave the medicine in its original packaging.

Good luck!

Regardless of where you are travelling to, even countries that shoot you for importing illegal drugs, as long as you have a letter from your doctor with your name and the drug on it, giving the reason why you are travelling with such medication, you will be just fine. Without that paperwork, you can be in serious trouble at certain borders. Not just the Far Eastern Islands either. Australia and NZ will give you a really bad time too.
