    Pauline - well, check the list above, and even if its not on there, bring your original prescription with you. Even if the meds are taken away at immigration, you can still get the prescription refilled at a private hospital in Dubai - and there are many there.

    I have gone thru the list and it does not appear to be there, so I guess it should be all OK. And as you said, I can get it over there if needed should it be removed from me in Dubai, my main concern was Jail for illegal drugs. I have a letter from my GP and I will present this should anything happen plus I have the receipt of the goods purchased here in Australia. Once again thankyou kindly for your assistance in this matter.
