Paracetamol suppositories for baby.. 70p abroad, 17 pounds in uk. Currently have a friend in Tenerife happy to bring some back. Is there a limit/any rules around this. I can't find anything online.

Look online. Lloyd’s chemist £3.86

Do you mean Lloyds pharmacy? I can't see them anywhere for that price and I don't find a Lloyds chemist when I Google. On Lloyds pharmacy they are prescription only. I do have them on repeat prescription so can get them for free but hate costing the nhs so much when they are only 70p abroad. Can anyone else actually help eith my question?

This is one of those questions you'd think there'd be an easily googable answer to and it's infuriating not to find one! If it's any use at all though, Stansted's security FAQ says

"I would like to carry some non-prescribed medicine in tablet form, such as paracetamol. May I do that?

Yes, you can. There is no limit to what you carry in tablet or pill form, whether it is prescribed medication or not."

I know suppositories are not really tablets or pills, but if there was a problem with bringing them I'd expect it to say so somewhere.
