Getting prescription medicine abroad

You may need to buy prescription medicine from a pharmacy while in another EU country. To do this, you should make sure that your prescription includes the right information. You should also be aware of rules on pharmacy expenses and how to get a reimbursement.

Medicines that don't require a prescription can be bought freely throughout the EU, and are not covered here.
