Bringing OTC and prescription meds in Germany - customs allowed?

Jump to last reply

We're going for a vacation in Germany and Belgium this August. There are two people with serious food allergies in our family, and we have to carry EpiPens and asthma inhalers with us all the time; I also would like to have with me things like Ibuprofen, kids Tylenol, OTC sleeping pills (not melatonin), valerian (herbal supplement) and peppermint oil pills just in case. I'm not going to take more than one small bottle of each, and nothing narcotics/opioids containing.

We got "chef cards" translated into German, French and Flemish to use in restaurants, but I'm still concerned about meds. I'd heard about that they have to be in original bottles and prescriptions have to carry original label. Should we do anything else, or it is OK tosimply take all this stuff in carry-on bag?
