Depending upon the underlying circumstances that your are writing about, it very well could be legal for law enforcement to have taken from your possession your prescribed legal prescription.

One basis for the legal taking would be that the prescription could be considered evidence of some crime that you may have committed or the prescription may have contributed to the alleged crime claimed to have been committed by you.
