Are Pain Killer illegal in Egypt?

Question, if these drugs are legal and it's the amount of drugs that's the problem, why didn't she just mail them to him in smaller quantities?
She seems to have a logical explanation, but would you take the risk of any government official to use logic?  Or common sense for that matter.

A British woman has been detained in Egypt after flying into the country with painkillers for her husband's sore back.
Laura Plummer, 33, from Hull, was arrested when she was found to be carrying tramadol and Naproxen in her suitcase, The Sun reported.
The newspaper said she signed a 38-page statement in Arabic which she thought would result in her being able to leave the airport, but she has been held in a 15ft by 15ft cell with 25 other women for nearly a month.
Her brother James Plummer, 31, said the family has been told she could face up to 25 years in jail, with one lawyer even mentioning the death penalty.
Mr Plummer said his sister had been arrested for what he thinks the authorities in Egypt call "drug trafficking", but said she had only brought a small amount of medication for her Egyptian husband who she visits two to four times a year.
The Sun said she took 29 strips of tramadol, each containing ten tablets, plus some Naproxen, adding that her husband suffers back pain due to an accident.
