Very unlikely. Paracetamol is over the counter medication in Thailand, I believe. As far as the inhalers, if they are prescription then they will have your name on them. Keep the meds in their original packaging. Bring what you will need and a little extra in case of a travel delay, but do not overdo it. You can buy paracetamol in Thailand, at least I could on my last trip.

You may want to use the search function for more info.

Good advice to keep labels etc on inhalers. In my experience it's never been a problem (over 4 or so trips). Apart from the one i keep on my person, I drop about 4 spare inhalers into suitcases, hand luggage etc and have never had them picked up on.

Standard inhalers are never going to be a problem, paracetamol can be bought at any 7-11 store so again no problem.
