In the AZ state interview you will be asked if you wish to itemize.  You can answer yes.  The medical expenses you entered in the federal interview should carry over if you are itemizing AZ. Your AZ itemized deductions includes 100% of the medical and dental expenses entered in the federal interview there is no 7.5% floor.
