carfreak ji - I was asking B&T saab
I agree with others - his friend is taking him for a ride. If he has already carried in worth some 5-7 years worth of medicines - why is he asking for a similar quantity.

My brother was also skeptic abut carrying medicine to UAE that too Homeopathic , but in the end he ended up taking close to 500 tablets,Nobody questioned about this,but he had his prescriptions with him,but B&T's Friend might have asked for 300 no of tabs ...not 300 strips.

Though it MUST be declared.
My experience with Dubai / UK / US is
1. You just need to put tick marks into the immigration form that says "Do you have any food item / medicine in your luggage?"
2. Baggage will be put in through X Ray again
3. If dog barks (dogs that sniff for drugs) then each and every things needs to be accounted for [Prescription for meds / Proper food labels for Namkeens / Sweets]
4. Med strips show up on scanners, for 4 - 5 strips nobody even bothers to question.
I usually carry Paracetamol / Combiflame / Ciprox (Ciprofloxacin) and declare it. No issues with one or two strips of each.
300 strips is surely "commercial" quantity. It might or might not be caught in Primary X-Ray screening (That is if you don't declare it yourself). But its simple asking for trouble.
