Controlled substances (medicines) in the UAE

So many of the substances and medicines that we easily take into other countries are not allowed in the UAE without proper prescriptions to accompany them.

There is no official list available on what these controlled substances are, but this website has made an attempt to list all the substances that they know of.

Its a really useful site to check before you make a trip to the UAE, because that harmless cold & flu medicine you got over the counter in most countries could land you in a lot of trouble.
