    Okay so I'm going on holiday to Greece. I need to to take my medication with me. I'm on iron tablets and I'm on the pill. Does anyone know of any restrictions to taking medication to Greece and any requirements? Would be helpful to hear from anyone has experience taking meds abroad even if not Greece

    I think it depends on the airline you might want to email them

    As above - check with the airline. But the general advice (and this is what I was told) is you take the medication in the original boxes and you take the white repeat slip.

    Hello! I am from Greece. In here everything is allowed! As for the airport check, I always take my prescribed medication with me when I travel abroad and I have never been in trouble!

    the airlines would not care less about pills, the only time i have ever had any bother with medication abroad was bringing it into singapore. You will be fine going to Greece unless you're also bringing any Narcotic type medications then you might want to ask the greeks themselves.
