Pharmacist Only Medicines

Pharmacist-Only medicines (also known as Restricted medicines) are a relatively small group of medicines that can be purchased from a pharmacist without a doctor’s prescription. They are not available for self-selection from the pharmacy shelves, and the sale must be made by a pharmacist. When selling these medicines, pharmacists must fulfil some special requirements designed to make sure you are properly informed about the safe and correct use of your medicine.

You should use Pharmacist-Only medicines only for the purpose recommended by the pharmacist or included in the printed information. Pharmacist-Only medicines should not be shared with other people.
