Carrying Adderall is legal in Portugal as long as you have a prescription for the medicine from a certified doctor. Without a prescription, no pharmacy will provide you with a refill. In most cases, you won’t be able to find Adderall in the pharmacy in Portugal, as it’s an American brand.
The brand names of European medications will likely be different from the brand names of the USA medications. So, you may not find Adderall in nearby pharmacies in Portugal at all.
While European doctors can’t refill the brand name of your U.S. prescription, they can likely prescribe a European equivalent.
If you are coming from abroad, you are suggested to put your medicine in your hand-carry bag with the prescription and the receipt. An adult caring for a child can carry the child’s medication along with the child’s travel paperwork.
You can talk to the Portuguese embassy in your country regarding what sort of medicines can you carry to Portugal. You can also check with your airline to see whether flying with Adderall is legal or illegal.
Make sure you have enough medication to cover your entire trip. If you will need your medication refilled, discuss this with your doctor ahead of time.
