Opioid Substitution Treatments: available

Travellers seeking continued dosing in Sweden are advised to contact a relevant treatment center well in advance of the prospective date of arrival in Sweden. For treatment centres click HERE

Importation of Methadone/Buprenorphine/Morphine: possible

Foreign patients are allowed to bring their own supply of medication needed for personal use for the duration of stay on condition that they carry a letter from their home physician or clinic (including quantity of methadone/buprenorphine/morphine, daily dosage, dates of arrival in and departure from Sweden) which clearly supports their need for the medication.

It should be noted that residents from one of the EU signatory countries of the “Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75 must carry with them a form called “Certification to carry drugs and/or other psychotropic substances for treatment purposes – Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75” when travelling to Sweden, provided such forms are available in the corresponding countries. For further information doctors or patients are advised to contact their relevant national Drugs and Medical Devices Agency.
