we are going to ovacik in September and my wife requires quite a lot of different pain medicines, we asked our GP if we would require a letter for the Turkish authorities, but he said not can anybody that reads this forum that has knowledge of this put our minds at rest.

I do carry a repeat prescription leaflet - the ones you get attached to the prescription and I do make sure all medicines are in their boxes with my name on. Having said all that no one has ever stopped me or looked at them.
It may be worth you knowing that some medicines cannot be bought in Turkey. In the past Codeine was one of these and I thought that was still the case but someone recently told me that had changed, but I am not sure. I walk in and out with co codamol every visit.
Can I bring medication to Turkey?
Medications in labeled pharmacy bottles can be brought into Turkey. Injections needles needed for those with diabetes are also allowed, but it would be helpful if you have a doctorâ€™s note or copy of your prescription with you. Wheelchairs of any sort are allowed into Turkey, along with breathing mask or other protective medical clothing.
