Default Non Prescription pills like headache tablets

HI there
I am moving to Doha in about a month and currently going through everything in my flat wondering what to chuck and what to bring. I just got to my medicine cabinet where I have a variety of things like cocodamol and paracetamol and lemsip. Can this be brought in to Doha or is it all illegal to bring over?
Any thoughts, greatly appreciated,
Thank you

They sell those here (although paracetamol is almost invariably panadol), almost everything over the counter, no prescription required for almost anything.
