Hi there... <BR><BR>Really quick question. We are heading out of Sydney, Australia in 3 weeks for European Experience 8 Sept 08 and i was hoping to take cold and flu tablets with me. Is there any limit on how much i can take? Obviously i dont want to look like a drug dealer!

    No limits just make sure that you have original package. Or a script from your doctor stating why you take what.

    so if I have orig. bottles and a letter stating why I take the medication, I don’t need an actual prescription, right?

    Mel&Nath – if you go to greece you cannot have any meds that contain codiene unless it is prescription and even then there are limits on how much you can bring in.

    Lady_o provided they are in the bottles that the pharmacist gave you with the little prescription label that has your name and your drs on it you just need the letter (at least that is what my specialist said)

    just realized something, I get one medication in the mail and the bottle they send it in is HUGE! much too big to pack, not sure what to do.

    if you contact the company/pharmacy that sends it to you you can request it be divided into smaller more transportable containers. I do this at my local pharmacy and they are always more then happy to do it.

    problem is I already had it filled. might try to put it in with other meds. have the letter from my doc. anyway.
