Taking a perscribed controlled substance to Germany.

Jump to last reply

Hey! I have done a lot of searching on the internet the last few days on this topic, but can't seem to get a clear answer.

Last week I was prescribed Hydrocodone(norco) because of Kidney Stones.

I'm planning to bring the medication in the original bottles that clearly have my name on them.

My question, however, comes from it being such a tightly regulated substance. Wikipedia says "In Germany, hydrocodone is no longer available for medical use. Hydrocodone is listed under the Betäubungsmittelgesetz as a Suchtgift in the same category as morphine."

Because of that, I'm worried about getting through customs. Even if it's not available for medical use, will they allow an American with the proper prescription to take it in with a proper amount of pills?(14 for a 18 day trip)

Since a kidney stone is so extremely painful, I need to know for sure what I'm doing wont lead to confiscation.

Thank you all!
