Question for the Canadians

Quick question related to my Toronto trip: Are there any medications that it's illegal to bring into Canada? Also, is there a website somewhere that would list these?

Specifically, I'm worried about Benadryl.

The Canada Border Services Agency doesn't mention legal drugs anywhere that I could find. Benadryl is sold in Canada, so you're probably safe bringing your own. I've never actually been asked about what drugs I'm carrying when flying into the country.

Keep in mind that the airlines won't let you take more than 5 mL of liquid on the plane however. Hopefully you're bringing caplets.

wjpoIf you're in doubt you could ask about it at customs or even ask your airline. You're more likely to have a problem with the airline than customs. If you need to buy any drugs I would suggest going to Zellers since they tend to have the lowest prices, especially on the generics.
And remember to add 14% for tax (GST & PST) on purchase prices.

You're good on the Benadryl -- I've got a cupboard stuffed with it. Which reminds me...

I've carried Benadryl into the States from Canada and back without any problems. The only thing to remember is to have it in its proper bottle or blister pack with box, so it's easily identifiable.

Enjoy your trip to Toronto :)

You'll be fine! Have an amazing time, it's warmer here than it has been all winter, so double check the weather before you come.
