Pharmacies and sale of medicines

Updated 14 December 2015

Prescription-only medicine and some types of over-the-counter medicines are only available at pharmacies.

Other over-the-counter medicines, natural medicinal products and vitamin and mineral preparations are also sold in many other shops, for example supermarkets, chemists and kiosks.

Medicines are also available online. But it is only permitted to receive medicines dispatched from an EU or EEA country.
