Restrictions on OTC Meds in luggage

Jump to last reply

I've been reading up on Greece and a common caution I'm seeing is that they are very strict on drugs coming in. The advise is to have a doctors note to go with your prescription medication. My question is regarding Over the Counter / Non-Prescription, specifically Excedrin Tension Headache / Acetaminophen. While I'm sure I could get some from a chemist upon arrival I prefer to travel with a small bottle since one of my triggers is egg yolks.

Should I be concerned that they will be confiscated upon arrival and plan to stop in at a chemist when I get into Athens? This would be the first stop on a 6 week trip.

Thanks!
