T3 from Greece


Hi I am travelling to Greece this Summer and hope to be able to obtain T3 when I am there. My question is does anyone know that if I were to get stopped at Customs here in the UK, would there be any problem with this as I know that there are certain drugs, e.g. Tramadol for which you would get into trouble for importing.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

You may have a problem if you bring a large amount back, an amount that would look suspiciously like you were supplying people. You can bring an amount back for personal use so a few boxes would be fine. Your biggest problem is possibly trying to source it. You may be lucky and find the odd pharmacy that will let you have one box but it would seem that even Greek residents have to show their prescription now and are restricted to one box at a time.

Thank you for that. Oh well I guess I can only try but I'm not very hopeful. Thanks again x
