YOUR MEDICATION MIGHT BE BANNED ABROAD – HOW TO TRAVEL SAFELY AND LEGALLY

iNews on 26th September carried an article asking if you knew that Vicks inhalers and Sudafed are banned in Japan?  Or that codeine is illegal in lots of countries including Greece and the UAE?  Or that you need a licence to take some sleeping pills, strong painkillers and anti-anxiety pills into Singapore.  Some over-the-counter and prescription medicines available in the UK are illegal or strictly controlled in other countries.  It provides advice, such as checking in advance, carrying a copy of your prescription, even if it is not banned, and ensuring your travel insurance covers any pre-existing condition.
