Hi,

Most pharmacies want a prescription for Tremadol (same drug) but I know the one on avenue Fatima Zohra running north from D'Jemma al Fna towards Dar el Bacha sells it without.Take your empty box with you. If they insist, you can get a prescription from a local doctor. Codeine won't be a problem.

Hi,

You should be OK at customs but it's always better to carry prescriptions with you just in case.

You can also purchase an ibuprofen product for the relief of pain called Algantil without prescription. Available as capsules or effervescent tablets.

Hi John,

Tremadol is not readily available over the counter in Marrakech which is why I have steered the OP to the one pharmacy I know where they will sell it without a prescription.
