I've never had a problem with anything upsetting my stomach except those tablets.
here you can but statins & BP tablets over the counter along with many anti-biotics.

Dacortin & Dalacin I buy over the counter for the dogs.Used to get a prescription from the Vet but don't bother now.
I also buy Limovan sleeping tablets & a strong painkiller, the name escapes me at the moment, 10 boxes at a time ( I just tell the Pharmacist in the morning & he orders & I pick up in the evening ) for sending back to the UK for Sis-in laws mum.
Limovan is known as Zimovane in the UK, 3.75 or 7.5 is a typical dose and really you should not be taking them long term nor the antibiotics your on. Have you had a good check up with a doctor recently? Limovan is also addictive and if you have been taking it for a few months or longer and if you are told to come off it do so slowly after taking advice.

Zimovane is now slowly going out of prescriptive use because of addiction and abuse issues and replaced with anti histamines which will help you sleep at night.

Can you still get antibiotics over the counter there Richard? They've cracked down here from the beginning of the year.

Yes as far as I know. I need some more for the dogs so I 'll let you know next week.

bob_bob. You obviously missed this part of my post;
" for sending back to the UK for Sis-in laws mum."
& this bit ;
" Dacortin & Dalacin I buy over the counter for the dogs".

I don't take anything except Bp tablet at present.

Sorry about that but regardless my post stands, whoever is getting them needs a check up, your not doing her any favours at all.

Went to the Farmácia this morning with a prescription for 3 items from the vet for one of our dogs.
Jokingly said " I suppose there's no discount for her ?" lol

watched the items go past the scanner; 5,95€; 8,93€; 10,63€ ; I'm getting 25 out of my wallet when the Pharmacist says " That's 10,05€ "
What !
Apparently with a prescription, even from the Vet, the discount applies.
So I paid 40% of the full amount . Worrying really.Then again she does have her own medical card.
