Medications in Saudi?
Hi, I want to visit my hubby, who is working in Saudi, however, I have some medical conditions which are complicating things.
My first concern is pain relief - I am on tramadol, and as far as I can find, it is a banned drug. The PR says as long as I have a script from SA, it will be ok, but I'm nervous of accepting his verbal assurance when the visa info clearly states that illegal drugs carry the death penalty.
Does anyone have any idea how to access strong pain relief in Saudi? As I believe codeine is also banned. How strict are they really?
Secondly, I often need a wheelchair and was hoping to rent one, but haven't been able to find any online information about hiring in Riyadh. Any suggestions?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
