Prescriptions for over-the-counter medicines
- You can buy over-the-counter medicines in pharmacies, supermarkets, and some high street shops.
- GPs, nurses, and pharmacists will not generally give you a prescription for over-the-counter medicines.
- Your local pharmacy offers help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns. If your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they will help you get the care you need.
