Susie, I don't think katslater can get extra tablets or a repeat prescription from her U.S.A doctor before her prescription medication has all gone, it's apparently the law in her country.
Absolutely correct maggy. America's really uptight about pain meds. Cheers!

Re codeine based products,I have been on them for years & take them with me to Corfu,never had a problem with getting stopped & in any case one country cannot stop you from taking your prescribed medication that your own countries Dr's have prescribed,like its already been said on here all the Greeks worry about is illegal taking of drugs & rightly so.
As to taking syringes I am diabetic & have never had a problem,I put my pen(thats what they look like now the syringes) & blood testing equipment into the tray with my watch ,phone,belt etc at airport security & no problem at all.
Happy hols to all still to go,ask me if I'm jealous,bet your life I am.
Thank you so much Pat! That's typically been my experience as well - leaving the USA - no one has ever searched my purse. I feel more relaxed now after hearing from you and several other members, that as long as it's IN the presciption bottle that the pharmacists give you (the lable includes your name, doctor's name, name of medication, directions on how to take it, and the phone number of the pharmacy and the date the pills were filled) Thank you.
I wish I could take you with me!!!!! Cheers!
