I realise this information won't be required by many out there and that some of you may already be aware of this, but for those of you who don't know....today I was able to buy prednisone over the counter from an Italian pharmacist despite not having a prescription. I showed him the empty box of pred which I just finished this morning and translated a few sentences into Italian explaining I was asthmatic etc which I showed him in the form of a text message on my phone- attempting to speak Italian with a strong N. Thankfully, I now have enough to last till I return home on Saturday. Over the weekend and into yesterday I have suffered with Asthma for the first time since I was a child and as a result had no medication available. In the past I used to have a Ventolin inhaler which I used to get on prescription form my doctor in the UK. You say your last attack was quite long ago, but I'm not sure if you currently have a prescription from the UK for it. Should you have a prescription from home, I would take that to a pharmacy and try my luck. If you don't get it, you can still go to a doctor here and get a prescription. Are there any over-the-counter products against asthma to tide you over until you go see him or her? Must be uncomfortable for you after having such a prolonged spell of it over the weekend... I've used Ventolin all my life but my Swiss GP told me they were rather old fashioned and put me on a mild cortisone (Symbicort). She told me Ventolin was rather an aggressive medication.
This is my first post but I've been lurking for a few weeks and reading lots of threads. ) only to be told I need blood tests and an ultrasound before the doctor could do anything (including a smear test). I'd like to ask you what you think about the health service over here. I've been here a few years but until now, I've always got my pill prescription from my old GP when I go back to the UK. He wrote a prescription that I have to take to my GP to be turned into a real prescription before I can then book these things. But, as I'm here permanently, my New Year's resolution was to get myself sorted over here. I went to my GP over here (40 minute wait), who told me I had to go for a visita ginecologica. The thing is, I really don't have all this spare time to go around sitting in waiting rooms for hours on end. I'll have to queue for the GP, then queue to book the blood tests and ultrasound, then queue to have the blood tests and ultrasound then make ANOTHER appointment with the gynaecologist with possibly ANOTHER 2 hour wait before I can get the damn prescription! I understand that the Italians have different routine exams that they consider important before you get the pill. My problem is that it's going to take hours of waiting in queues and weeks of waiting for appointments to get a simple thing sorted! I spoke to my boyfriend about it (in tears I was so frustrated) and he said to pay to go private but I feel I shouldn't on principle. I pay LOADS of tax and contributions here, so why should I have to go private to get decent service?! News posted: Storage category do you need a prescription for ventolin in italy.

May 6, 2014. You can go into a pharmacy and ask for an emergency supply but there is. In a number of European countries you can buy them over the counter. Personally, I think Ventolin ought to be sold over the counter in this country. I think the pharmacist I saw was, as you say, very kind. anybody know if I can purchase prednisone over the counter without a prescription.
