We are from the US and contemplating visiting long term in Portugal . My partner is on opioids for a chronic condition . How difficult would it be to obtain an opioid prescription for long term use ? How would one go about this .? Thank you all in advance . We want this to be done totally above board .

to "Nursey19": Opiod scrips are filled at hospitals only. You need not only the US doctor's scrip, but it would be good to have a note from that doc to explain why, for how long, etc. Might also require a Portuguese physician's approval. Not impossible to get, just some red tape at first.

Might be helpful to bring a copy of the chronic condition's medical history.
