Hi, I was wondering if I could ask for anyone’s help who has flown to Rhodes. Is it okay to take paracetamol and ibuprofen into Rhodes? As I’m worried about all the stories of taking certain drugs into the country.

Thank you!

They’re fine, they are available over the counter here too.

Absolutely fine to take both. I am actually prescribed codeine which is illegal in Greece--but take copies of my prescription with me. (Lots of copies--give husband one too, so if one is lost, you have it)

It's ok. But if your worried put them in your hold luggage like I do. Never had any problems. The are no checks on arrivals at Rhodes airport.
