I TRAVELLING TO DUBAI IN OCTOBER THIS YEAR, I AM TAKING MEDICATION FOR ANKYLOSING-SPONDYLITIS (Celecoxib)+(CODINE) CAPS/TABS. I HEARD THAT SOME MEDICATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN DUBAI. CAN I TAKE THE ABOVE MEDICATIONS WITH ME TO DUBAI? DO I NEED A DOCTOR'S NOTE TO TAKE THESE MEDICINES INTO THE UAE? PLEASE ADVISE. MANY THANKS. GEORGE WILDER.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Celecoxib is not a controlled substance. There is no restriction to this medication.

However you will still need a doctor's prescription to justify its use in Dubai.
Hence please carry your doctor's script with you as well.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
