Had the same question coming out to Thailand, the answers ranged from no to yes, bring a copy of your script and no more than a months supply in the original packaging, I cant use any derivative of Brufen so ended up reverting to Celecoxib ( a simile of Brufen) and paracetamols, so didn't get arrested but am in pain.

I’ve always had to travel with a lot of prescription medication, including co codimal, I just put it all in a see through plastic bag inside my hand luggage, only once was the bag checked and even then they took no notice of the drugs, hope this helps

Re: Co-codamol

My wife had a high white blood cell count a few years ago and the doctor in the UK put her on drugs inc Co-codamel which she brought back to Turkey. She also had to have the Doctors prescription to show at the customs baggage check if she was stopped. There was never a problem. Butt007

Tramadol & codeine are banned, but prescription medication is normal. If you have the right paperwork,or it could be a problem. No more than a month.

Re: Co-codamol

Turkey has its own brands of co-codamol which used to be available over the counter but now need a prescription.
One of the brands is Geralgine-K which contains 500mg paracetamol, 30 mg caffeine and 10mg codeine and costs 8.5tl for 20 tablets.
A stronger codeine version Geralgine Plus contains 300mg paracetamol and 30mg codeine and costs 15.5tl. Our family doctor has prescribed both.
