Getting prescription medicine abroad

UK decision to invoke Article 50 of the TEU: More information

For the time being, the United Kingdom remains a full member of the EU and rights and obligations continue to fully apply in and to the UK:

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.
