Would anyone know if there are any restrictions on prescribed medications that can or cannot be taken into Kenya?

I don't know the answer to this one, but guess that if you carry a Doctor's letter (which you only show if asked) you should be OK.

If there prescribed by your GP and given to you by the pharmacist they will have your name and address on them - no problems whatsoever :) this includes Birth Pills or Menopause tablets.

Tablets can stay in your hold luggage or hand luggage but creams over 100mml must go in the hold and Eye drops need a clear zip top bag put in the tray .

If you are taking Tamoxifen or any Morphine based drugs then a letter must be presented to the customs officer sometimes they ask another time no questions.

Personal scripted meds are okay. Preferably in their original bottles, but often these are large, so people use those "pill boxes" still should have the original script, if asked.

Same with vitamins.

Keep all meds in your carryon bags.
