Ive taken cocodamols to barbados with no problems. As a precaution when travelling, I take the original boxes and my prescription.

Also make sure all medication is in your hand luggage..just in case your main luggage goes awol.

I took it to Barbados in April/May this year with a copy of my prescription, no problem. The only place I've ever had it queried was Sharm el Sheik airport , where they wanted to confiscate all my drugs including chemo.

Hi no problem just bring pharmacy labelled boxes and a copy of your prescription. I was also concerned last year but everything was fine , don’t worry.
