Over the counter medicines are fine. For any prescription medicines, it is better to have a doctor's prescription to show if asked.  Bringing regular medicines is not banned.

Thank you for your reply brother.  I am plan to bring some medicine for fever and cough only.  But no prescription. Is it allows

No problem with fever and cough medicines but why do you want to bring them?? There are  plenty of pharmacies locally where you can buy these.

No problem with the regular medicines.

Be careful and check before taking anything that could cause issues into Saudi.
Things that are over the counter in many countries could land you in prison is Saudi.
